San Francisco, CA
PRIMARY RIDE STYLE
FAVORITE RIDE PLACE/ROUTE
Mount Tamalpais in Northern California. My favorite route is Alpine Dam and the Seven Sisters.
FAVORITE POST-RIDE FOOD/DRINK
In-N-Out Burger, Double-double animal style, with animal style fries.
It's brand new, so not yet.
CLIMB VS. DESCEND?
Climb! I'm certainly not the fastest up hills, but I enjoy it.
I want to do one of those biking and eating tours in Japan.
FULL LYCRA, Y/N?
I'm all about that Lycra life.
AIDS/LifeCycle. Seven days, 545 miles, endless costumes, and joy and community.
I LOVE RIDING WITH
I ride with all kinds of different people—the AIDS/LifeCycle community includes folks of all genders, sexual orientations, ages, body types, and experience levels. I've met some amazing people through this event.
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou
WHY DO YOU RIDE?
Riding is the way I like to connect with my body, my community, and the outdoors. I also ride to raise money for HIV/AIDS programs in my state. I've biked the AIDS/LifeCycle six times, and I've raised over $33,000 for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.
SKILL YOU WISH YOU COULD MASTER BUT HAVEN’T (YET)
I've never raced, so I don't know anything about drafting or pacelines—I’d love to learn at some point.
