Nearly 2400 Cyclists Riding Through Central, South Coasts For HIV/AIDS Programs

A huge caravan of bicyclists on a dual mission of having fun, and raising money to help those living with HIV and AIDS is on the South Coast.

Nearly 2400 cyclists are taking part in the 15th annual AIDS/Lifecycle Ride, a 545 mile week-long trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. 

Today, the cyclists rode from Lompoc to Ventura, with a stop for lunch in Goleta.

Tomorrow,  the cyclists will start at San Buenaventura State Beach and take the PCH to Los Angeles, for the event’s finish.

It’s expected the ride will raise more than $16 million dollars for HIV/AIDS related programs in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
