Red Feathers And Rainbow Spandex! Cyclists Complete Seven-Day Ride For AIDS Awareness

By Debbie EmeryRadar Reporter

Dressed in a rainbow of brightly colored spandex – some wearing bike helmets, stuffed animals, feathers, horns or mohawks – 2,225 cyclists rolled into Los Angeles on Saturday after a grueling seven-day bike ride down the California coast from San Francisco on the 11th annual AIDS/LifeCycle, and has exclusive photos of their journey.

Aged from 18 to 83, the resilient riders had survived a week of steep hills, pouring rain, and sleepless nights camping to raise $12.6 million for the HIV/AIDS related services of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and the San Francisco AIDSFoundation.

Even the 545-mile trek couldn’t wipe the smiles off the faces of the riders, especially on “Red Dress Day” when they painted their nails and rode in the most fabulous sea of scarlet costumes!
