    Surf City AIDS Ride, Santa Cruz CA, October 2

    One of my favorite "century" bike rides is the Surf City AIDS ride from Santa Cruz in the fall. It's a 100 mile bike ride in a single day that benefits the Santa Cruz AIDS Project. I have ridden it three times before, but have shied away from the fund-raising aspect of the event, preferring instead to pay a flat fee and just ride. Last year I skipped it altogether, as I was recovering from a crash. This year I've committed to raising $250.

    If you would like to learn more about the ride and/or consider donating, click here: Surf City AIDS Ride 2011 - Santa Cruz AIDS Project

    Of course, it's not too late to register as a rider, and I would be glad for the company. (There are routes shorter than 100 miles.) It's a beautiful course and well supported by friendly volunteers.
    Have bicycle, will ride. Finished 2012 with 10,089 miles, 683 hours, and 482,000 feet of elevation gain.
    2013: 201 rides, 8171 miles, 544 hours, 480K feet.

    Two weeks until the ride! I'm 22% towards my goal. Donations from other cyclists, so far. No Mice Chatters yet. Hopefully that will change soon.

    8 days until the ride! I haven't got any play from Mice Chatters yet. Even though there's only $25 credited on my page, I'm holding another $55 dollars that I plan to turn in on the day of the ride. That makes for a total $80. I may have a ways to go, but it's not as far as it looks.

    Donate here.

    Re: Surf City AIDS Ride, Santa Cruz CA, October 2

    Getting close! I just did a check of my pledge page, and it shows $150. It doesn't show the $55 I'm holding to turn in on the day of the ride. So I've actually raised $205 so far. Only three days to go now.

    I put a shout out to MiceChat on my pledge page.

    Just a couple more days now. If you are in the Santa Cruz area on Sunday, you might want to come to the finish line festival. It's free for everyone, riding or not.

    The ride is tomorrow! Looks like the weather will be cool but favorable. I'm actually $55 closer to the goal than my page suggests. I'll try to remember to stop and take pictures to post here and on Facebook. It's not too late to donate!
