Take a group of guys (gals, too!) and mix them with some helmets, form-fitting Spandex and bicycles and you have the 6th Annual Action Cycling 200, a 200-mile cycling trek later this month that raises money for HIV research.
The event, which I wrote about recently in my Southern Voice sports column, picked up some additional gay press this week with a piece in David Atlanta magazine. It focuses on not only the cycling event, but a week’s worth of events that include a run/walk and a reading of Larry Kramer’s “The Normal Heart” with a local All-Star cast.
Some 100 riders are expected for the cycling event on May 17-18, which has raised more than $300,000 for the Emory Vaccine Center since the ride’s inception in 2003.
