"Don't let me hear you say life's taking you nowhere...."
Life is so strange sometimes...I feel like it's taking me nowhere, well at least that's the way I felt over the last couple of months...but things are starting to have a bit of a golden feel to them...(I luuuuuve Bowie, just saying)....
I remember as a kid that every time I went to my moms office I would dig in her desk drawer to take a peek at this marble she kept. This wasn't an average marble it had the golden rule written on the side "do to others as you would have them do to you". I've always tried to live my life with that in mind. LA seems short of people that feel the same way, but I've lucked out. I'm taking part in this great event that will have me submerged in goodness. Plus I was invited to ride this event with one of the golden ones...
I'll be riding 545 miles in 7 days from San Fransisco to Los Angeles on June 1st but first I need to raise $3k to take part in this amazing event! If you'd like to help by donating, remember, no amount is too small. If you aren't able to donate and still would like to show your support then post this link to your facebook page.

As some of you might know, I'm an avid cyclist and bike touring is something I've wanted to get into. While I explore the intro to bike touring I will also be helping others in need. It's a win win for all. I created a new blog so you can see my progression. I will be posting updates, training information (I'm training on the streets of LA instead of what I've been use to, the countryside of Nebraska, a bit different) and about the event it's self. A friend from Nebraska who did this event said it was life changing and for such a great cause, to help end HIV/AIDS.
Follow my new blog bout my new bike adventure:
