Preparations for the world’s largest annual HIV/AIDS fundraiser pedal into high gear at the Kick Off Party and Expo for AIDS/LifeCycle 2013. Hundreds of cyclists and volunteer “roadies” will gather at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park to launch the training and fundraising season in preparation for the 545-mile ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles in June. For one day only, AIDS/LifeCycle is offering a $30 discount to people who register at the expo.
“If you’ve ever considered being a part of AIDS/LifeCycle but haven’t yet signed up, don’t miss this event,” said Neil Giuliano, CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. “We’re excited to embark on our 12th AIDS/LifeCycle and we want as many people as possible to join us on the road this June. When you become part of AIDS/LifeCycle, not only do you join an amazing community of truly heroic people, but you also make a real difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS.”
The Kick Off Party and Expo includes prize drawings for bikes, bike accessories, and more. Our community partners will have great deals on bikes and camping gear, provide expert training and bike advice, and offer free massages. Veteran participants will answer questions about what to pack, how to train, and what to expect during the ride.

About San Francisco AIDS Foundation
No city experienced epidemic levels of HIV faster than San Francisco. At San Francisco AIDS Foundation, we work to end the epidemic where it first took hold, and eventually everywhere. Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco. Through education, advocacy and direct services for prevention and care, we are confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to the disease. We refuse to accept that HIV transmission is inevitable.
The best way to fight HIV is to know your status. A simple test can determine if you are infected with the virus.
Our diverse programs help thousands of people every year. From testing to prevention to care, our services assist communities where need is greatest.
