Cyclists are making their way to the Central Coast for the annual AIDS/Life Cycle Bicycle Ride Tuesday.

Riders participating in the yearly event will arrive at the Paso Robles Fairground by way of southbound Highway 101 from the King City area.

They will continue on throughout the Central Coast for the week. Riders will be going from Paso Robles through Morro Bay and Pismo Beach on Highway 1 to reach Santa Maria on Wednesday, Santa Maria to Lompoc on Thursday and Lompoc to Ventura on Friday.

The California Highway Patrol will be monitoring the ride along the coast.

Caltrans is reminding drivers to slow down and move over if you are near any of the cyclists on the road.

The AIDS/Life Cycle Ride raises awareness surrounding the stigma of HIV/AIDS while fundraising for San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

The organizations provide free services and resources for people affected by HIV/AIDS.

Cyclists and volunteers of the AIDS/Life Cycle Ride have raised $16.6 million for services.
