When I was in 8th grade, the AIDS epidemic was still a major topic. Nearly 10 years that it had been announced as a major killer of so many people, schools began to talk about safe sex with their sex education lessons. I don’t know how many schools had this, but I was lucky enough that mine did. While I don’t actually recall the name of the program, I spent most of my 8th Grade year talking to other students about safer sex. The program was saying that there was really no such thing as “safe” sex, because there’s always a risk. I even got to go to a conference with other students.
The Aids LifeCycle is a 540+ mile bike ride that begins in San Francisco and ends in L.A. It’s all done in 7 days. It’s all along the coast, so the ride should be beautiful, provided the weather is good. See for yourself what the route is like.
Now that I finally have a bike, I am so excited to finally do this. I supposed I could have asked around to borrow a bike, but I know that I already am going to have to ask around for a tent. So I just want to give you all a heads up that I will soon be hitting all of you up for donations for the ride. BUT here’s the good news: It’s not until next year. Next June, the coast will be MINE!!! Muahahahahaha!!!
I really wanted to do this year’s ride, but I was just 2 months too late. Shucks. It’d be nice to finally do more than to just give a few bucks here and there.
Just in case your wondering what it’ll be like, check out the documentary that was made a few years back about a group of riders in one of the past events. You can find it on Netflix!
