AIDS LifeCycle: Day 1 (83 miles down, 462 miles to go)

What always gets on AIDS LifeCycle are the mothers standing on the top of a hill with a photo of their son who lost the battle with AIDS. They say thank you. In fact, I should thank them. They get me through the day.

But I digress…

We rode out today from Cow Hollow excited, ready to tackle any hill. The day was a bit challenging as I lost my riding partner (Shop Girl). We met up at lunch and finished the day together in Santa Cruz.

Hills, beaches, and drag queens in rest stops. It was wonderful.

Tomorrow we have 109 miles on our way to LA.
