This year was the 7th event. I am a founding member of the event and I have crewed and helped organize it every year since it began.
2011 was a banner year for NCAC - we recruited over 145 people - 101 cyclists and 44 crew - and raised over $250,000 for Northern California HIV/AIDS agencies, Client Services and HIV Prevention Programs.
I was in charge of the camp truck and helping to herd the rest stop crew into some semblance of order - and of course, like I usually do, I ended up with a few extra jobs along the way - but someone has to do it and it might as well be me! :-)
I have uploaded a bunch of pics in no particular order (because I am EXHAUSTED) - some are crew, some are riders, some are scenery.
If you would like to know more please follow the link! It is an exceptional event to be a part of every year!
