Blake Strasser - Rider # 561

OK - you guys know the drill. On Friday November 15th, and Saturday November 16th I will be riding from Miami to Key West 165-miles. It is basically flat, which does not make it easy. You NEVER stop pedaling on flats. You NEVER switch body positions on flats. Only Colby's giggle and Rodney's snarky one-liners break it up. They are my "moment of wheeeeeee" for two days. Yay men!

But here's the deal. The south is the new epicenter of AIDS in the US. While (knock wood) we are on the verge of ending AIDS in NY and CA is not far behind, the south has basically stalled. That is why I am more than happy to raise funds and awareness for a plethora of grassroots organizations in FL who are on the frontline.

Please help me raise $5,000! Every penny that I raise (with your help) will be given to AIDS Service Organizations and directed to prevention, education and direct services.
