It’s mid-December and you know what that means. Time to brainstorm New Year’s resolutions. Top on the list: an exercise routine, expanding your social network, and supporting a good cause. How about getting all three in one! Get your wheels turning on the 2010 AIDS/LifeCycle: a seven-day (June 6-12) fully supported cycling tour from San Francisco to Los Angeles benefiting the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. This life-changing ride—not a race—travels through some of California’s most beautiful countryside: lush farmland, coastal vistas on Highway 1, and quiet country roads. Sign up and you’ll have access to top-level training ride leaders advising on equipment, safety, and what to expect on the ride. Regularly scheduled training rides will give structure to your training—and introduce you to like-minded new friends. For the main event volunteer roadies will take care of all your needs (gear transport, rest stops, bike tech, food, and that extra boost of encouragement when you need it). Feel like a pro as strangers cheer you roadside. Ready to get started? Attend an informal AIDS/LifeCycle introductory meeting tonight (Dec. 10 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.) to learn how you can reward yourself by helping others. Enjoy the ride.
BONUS: Weekend Sherpa subscribers receive $20 off the registration fee.
