AIDS Ride for Life 2016

 

Yesterday was my 4th year participating in the AIDS Ride for Life. It's a bike ride fundraiser for the Southern Tier AIDS program. I did the 100 mile course, around Cayuga Lake. It's not a race -- just a fun bike ride to raise money for STAP. It's very well organized and lots of people participate. There were 300 volunteers and the riders raised over $200,000.

First Visit to Letchworth

Last weekend I went camping in Letchworth State Park with Nick, my co-worker Kurt and his wife Megan, and my co-worker Chris and his girlfriend Eliza. All of us have wanted to go to Letchworth but had never made it there before. It's only about 2 hours away and has a reputation of being a really beautiful, scenic park.
