AIDS/LifeCycle Raises a Record $11.5 Million to Fight AIDS
Date:6/1/2008

aid.

In addition to being a momentous physical challenge for the riders, AIDS/LifeCycle -- which is co-produced by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center -- is a major logistical feat. Each day, crews of hundreds of volunteers set up and break down a "city on wheels" of tents, mobile kitchens, bathroom and shower facilities and support gear. These volunteers, called "roadies," perform myriad other duties, including posting directional signs, serving meals, repairing bikes, providing first aid and entertaining weary riders with impromptu performances -- often in costume.

It is estimated that 160,000 Californians are living with HIV/AIDS, many of whom are unaware of their infection. In California, HIV/AIDS has had a particularly severe effect on the gay community, with more than 73 percent of all cases occurring among gay and bisexual men of all races and ethnicities, compared with 59 percent of AIDS cases nationally. Communities of color, including gay and bisexual men, have been disproportionately affected as well. For example, although African-Americans comprise only 6.7% of California's population, they account for nearly 19% of those living with HIV/AIDS in the state.

AIDS/LifeCycle is supported by presenting sponsors Gilead Sciences, Shopoff Properties Trust and FedEx.

The route of the ride and the overnight campsites are as follows:

* Sunday, June 1 -- Opening Ceremony: The Cow Palace, 2600 Geneva Ave.,

Daly City, CA 94014. 79.3 miles to Santa Cruz.
