Bicycle Diaries the 3rd - Mission Accomplished, THANK YOU

2500 riders, 500 roadies, 545 miles, 7 days, 1 goal, we made it, together we raised over $11.6 million to help end AIDS! (this record breaking number making ALC the largest amount money raised event for HIV/AIDS)

That's right, I just completed AIDS/LifeCycle 7, my third ride. Despite 2 flats over the 7-day period, I rode every single mile from San Francisco to Los Angeles, with my own power (and your support of course). Personally I've risen over $6000 this year (you still can make online donation via my homepage). I could have not done this without your financially and emotionally supports. I want to share this success with all of you. THANK YOU.

This year 2500 cyclists from 12 countries, 42 states participated in ALC 7, the youngest ride was 18 and the oldest was 81, so if you think you were too young or too old to ride, think again. 500 people already registered in camp for ALC 8, which will be held May 31-June 6, 2009. Please check out for more details, if you're interested in participating, either as cyclist or roadie, please let me know.

Just thought you like to know some fun facts, we rode through 55 towns/jurisdictions in 8 counties; drank 420 gallons of coffee, 660 gallons of milk, 16,800 gallons of water; ate 125 cases of bananas, 44,600 eggs, 1,200 lbs. of pasta, 4,400 lbs. of chicken, 6,200 lbs. of vegetables; used 1,055 portable toilets, 1,640 sleeping tents, 18,000 packages of "butt balm."
