Once again this year we set up a coffee stand and welcomed hundreds of cyclists as they passed by our ranch on Jolon road. The riders are traveling from King City to Paso Robles on the third day of the ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. This year we served cookies instead of donuts and it seemed to be a big hit with the riders. Although the ranch is not far from the morning starting point, the riders not only enjoy the coffee and cookies, but are also are treated to the wonderful aroma and beauty of our lavender fields at the ranch.
The annual AIDS Lifecycle event raises millions of dollars every year that helps support the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center in their efforts to provide services and support to folks living with HIV/AIDS. This year’s ride has raised over sixteen million dollars to date.
