A must see video about the event
The history of AIDS Life Cycle the 7 day, 545 mile event which I first cycled in 2007 was the reason I started my website www.bipolarbear.us. The rides prior all less the 150 cyclist I wasn't connecting with other like myself who were dual diagnosed. AIDS life cycle or ALC with it's over 3.000 cyclist the odds of me finding others who were dual diagnosed. Today I just arrived at one of my newest and oldest friends whom I met that very first year, Virgil Parrett. Thanks to Virgil and several others I'm able to afford participating as they host me in their homes.
I've come a long way since the my first year of cycling, today I'm a consumer advocate, educator, certified peer specialist for both mental health and HIV since 2004. Today my recoveries plural are in check, I owe a great deal to all folks I've met along the way since I was diagnosed, the long bumpy road was not an easy one, it was very hard due to my not fitting in from the bipolar diagnoses.
So here I am again, just off my flight from Newark, friends out doing errands and me well. I wanted to share with you all the history of my participation on AIDS life cycle once again, this my sixth year.
Thanks to everyone who donated, I left New Jersey this morning, turned on my cell and during my flight another $150 was donated.
