The Laurel Foundation Ride for AIDS 10 is a one and two day fundraising ride to help raise funds to send children and youth affected by HIV and AIDS to The Laurel Foundation's programs in 2012.
This year marks the 10th year of The Laurel Foundations Ride for AIDS. To celebrate, we have decided to host both a one-day fun ride and a two-day anniversary ride. The date of the Ride is April 14-15. The two-day ride will start on April 14 in San Diego and travel north 165 miles up the beautiful Pacific Coast, stopping in Irvine on the first day. The second day of the ride will have two start points. One will start in Irvine (for those who began the ride in San Diego the day before) and the other starting in Santa Monica. Both rides will meet up in Redondo Beach and then travel back to the finish line in Santa Monica.
