    Hey everyone, I haven't been around here in awhile but I used to be a regular.

    Aside from bass playing one of my other hobbies in life is road cycling.

    This June I am participating in Aids/LifeCycle 5. It is a 7 day, 585 mile, bicycle trip down the coast of California from SF to Los Angeles.

    The ride is raising money to help fight for a cure for Aids/HIV. I know there must be some folks on this board that either have the disease or know someone who does and would like to make a contribution.

    I have commited to raising $2500 minimum by May 19th and am asking everyone to help as they can or as they see fit.

    You can donate by going to http://www.aidslifecycle.org/6570

    Even if you can't or decide not to donate please feel free to pass the website and info to anyone you know who might.

    Remember even $1 can add up to alot when you consider how many members are on this board so don't think "I can't donate more than a few bucks so I might as well just forget it."

    I apreciate all the help I can get and I am sure everyone out there that is strugling with Aids or HIV would apreciate it even more than I do.

    Thanks!

    Good luck to you! I'll chip in. I did AIDS Lifecycle 3 and it was a blast. One of the other riders my year that I got to meet was Tracy Chapman!
