Riders from 12 Countries, 42 States Complete 545-Mile Trek from San

Francisco

LOS ANGELES, June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- After a week experiencing the physical and emotional challenges of a 545-mile journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles, the 3,000 participants in AIDS/LifeCycle (ALC) rolled to a victorious finish in West Los Angeles today, having raised some $11.6 million from more than 60,000 donors.

The 2,500 riders and 500 volunteer "roadies" were greeted by thousands of friends and supporters at the Veterans Administration Center. At an emotional ceremony later in the afternoon, actress Jane Lynch will welcome the riders home as the oldest (81 years old) and youngest (18 years old) cyclists guide a riderless bike to the stage to commemorate those lost to AIDS.

AIDS/LifeCycle 7 set a new record for participation and money raised, attracting cyclists from 12 countries and 42 states, including a contingent of people living with HIV known as the Positive Pedalers. The event is the largest annual HIV/AIDS fundraiser in the country.
