I’m doing it again! Raising money and awareness for the fight against HIV/AIDS. On Sunday, June 3, I begin riding my my bike (along with 2,500 other riders) for 7 days and 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles in AIDS/LifeCycle 11. AIDS/LifeCycle is the largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser in the world and last year’s ride raised over $13 million!
I’m happy to report I have reached my $3,000 fundraising goal and couldn’t have done it without the help of Sophia and our very own Fiction Vixen readers! Thank you to those who donated to make this ride for me possible. Thank you for choosing to support this cause.
If you have a loved one or friend that has been affected by HIV or AIDS, I would love to honor that person by writing their name on the red ribbon that will be tied to my helmet while I ride. I will also write their name on the ALC banner on the day of orientation. Several of you have already given me a name to write on the ribbon – thank you!
Send me the name of your loved one by May 31 via:
- DM on Twitter (@samanthacycles)

Last year I had fun sharing pictures with Sophia while I biked across CA. I’ll be doing it again this year too. I’m excited to wear this year’s Red Dress Day costume – I’ve stepped it up this year – it may involve ruffles and skulls.
Thank you everyone!
