Cyclists ride to fight against HIV/AIDS

Thousands of cyclists were riding from Paso Robles to Santa Maria for an important cause today. It's part of the 9th annual AIDS Lifecycle, a 545-mile trek from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The event aims to raise awareness and $10 million for the fight against HIV and AIDS. Riders of all backgrounds and abilities can participate. We caught up the cyclists in Guadalupe.

One of my goals in the ride was to ride for someone everyday. I've ridden for former patients of mine, for a family member who died of AIDS, for an ex-partner, and for myself. This definitely is showing that i can accomplish big big things," said Cyclist Ed Eggleton.

Organizers say more than 105,000 Californians currently live with HIV and AIDS.
