Braking The Cycle 2006

Alright tubers, here is where I ask you all to cough up the dough! As you may or may not know, I have participated in 3 AIDS Rides since 2002. In that time I've raised over $9,000 and have rode over 1000 miles on my damn bike.

From NYC to Boston; From Border to Border the whole state of Massachusetts; From Woods to Witches (Berkshires to Salem) yours truly has suffered through sweltering heat, blistering sun, torrential rains, and even a tornado in hopes of raising money and awareness for HIV/AIDS prevention and education.

Braking The Cycle: On September 15th I will begin a three day 275 mile ride from Gettysburg National Park to Manhattan and I hope to raise $3,500 for The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. The Center is a NYC based non-profit organization dedicated to HIV/AIDS awareness, education, and prevention but also to programs, counselling, and care for those living with or affected by the disease.

AIDS is 25 years old this year. Not an anniversary you celebrate with diamonds or copies of Arrested Development on dvd but an anniversary that reminds us that this disease still has no cure. That this disease is still spreading. That this disease is not getting the federal and local funds necessary to continue research and education in communities which need it the most.

By supporting me and sponsoring me on this ride you can help make sure this 25th year is a year to remember; a year you did something!

Head on over to my site and read up on the ride, the route, The Center, AIDS information as well as my ride blog which will continue to grow as I push harder to train, as I seek out a new bike for the cheapest price possible, and as funds start coming in! Please forward this on to any of your fellow tv fans, fellow activists, fans of dan, and fans of The Amazing Race!

Oh yes my friends, you didn't think I'd go without a TV tie-in! Another rider on Braking The Cycle is none other than Amazing Race 4 winner Chip Arndt (formerly of Reichen and Chip). I hope to score an interview while riding. Hey in 2004 I mastered peeing while riding so anything is possible!

If you can donate any amount I would appreciate it! If you can donate $25, $50, $100 or more you will receive some duckyxdale swag! When you donate, please remember to select my information "Dan McCallum - #59"!
