Wow!! I am a veteran of 13 AIDS rides and a Positive Pedaler, living 20 years with HIV, as of the very week of the ride. I readily claim Geoff's recap of ALC6 to be stylish, funny, touching and true to the cause.

I could not have said anything like he did, which helps to remind me of the true heros of such events--the people who do not have to do the ride for personal reasons, but choose to do so because others need help, and because this disease needs to be kept in the common arena.

Thank you Geoff, so very, very much. For making me laugh, cry, and be proud to have ridden with folks like you.
