AIDS memorial ride rolling through Central Coast

More than 2,000 cyclists are making their way through the Central Coast this week.

They're part of the aids life-cycle ride.

It's a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness for aids and HIV-related services.

Wednesday, they made their way through San Luis Obispo County.

The cyclists are spending the night at Preisker Park in Santa Maria.

"I can't tell you how touched I am by everyone I've seen this week and how much dedication they have for the cause and how much they're just fighting to do what's right to end aids so we don't have to suffer through this anymore," said bicyclist Michael Eisman.

Thursday, they'll head to Lompoc.

Many of them will be wearing red dresses to represent the aids red ribbon.
