Welcome to AIDS/LifeCycle! We’re a 7-day, 545-mile ride to END AIDS! AIDS/LifeCycle is co-produced by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation and is designed to advance their shared interest to reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Red Dress Day has been a tradition since the beginning of the Ride. The thought was that if everyone dressed in red on this day, the community would look like a giant red ribbon as they traversed the switchbacks on Day 5. Over the years, the community has started new traditions, and the Red Dress Day outfits have become more and more elaborate, inventive and fabulous!
On Day 3, your strength will be tested by Quadbuster, one of the most challenging hills of the Ride. Cheered on by veteran Cyclists and Roadies, we will support you up the treacherous hill. Will you defeat Quadbuster in 2017?
Safety is a core value on AIDS/LifeCycle. We want each and every one of you to make it safely to Los Angeles! The success of this event depends on each and every one of us practicing safety and taking care of one another.
Meet Buz Miller, a longtime member of the Sweep Roadie team. The Sweep team works to ensure that all of our Cyclists make it to the next camp safely, by transporting Cyclists with mechanical repairs or over-exhaustion to the next rest stop!
AIDS/LifeCycle is an event where lifelong friends can be made. Whether it’s a training buddy, a member of your Roadie team, or even a tent-mate, you’ll meet some of the most incredible people around.
