AIDS/LifeCycle 9 is here!

Tomorrow we head to the Cow Palace for orientation (Day 0), dropping off our bikes to be ready for ride out Sunday morning at 6;30am. We’ll watch the safety video (I heard it is new this year), and perhaps stand in a few other lines; pledge medical and tent, before check-in.

There are 25 current members riding this year, and as of this morning, Different Spokes members have raised over $119,000.00!

Riding this year are:

Adam Fritzler
Ben Marks
Chris Thomas
Dale Leininger
David Gaus
David Stouffer
Don Dodge
Eric Shangle
Frank Stelter
James Betbeze
James DeVinny
Janine Swanepoel
Jon Manzo
Joseph Collins
Joseph Pulice
Kevin Barden
Mitch Wood
Peter Graney
Roger Sayre
Scott Ciliberti
Serge Huard
Susan Fish
Thomas Nixon
Wanderson Carlos
William Bir

Six of us raised over $5k qualifying for the incentive jersey. Several others are close.

Six of us have been training ride leaders this year also: Chris Thomas, Janine Swanepoel, Joseph Collins, Joseph Pulice, Susan Fish, and myself.

Should have lots of pictures and stories to share. And if the iPad and WordPress app work in camp, perhaps even daily blog updates from the Ride.
