Rep. Schiff began representing West Hollywood in 2013 when redistricting placed the Creative City into one that runs north to Pasadena and La Canada/Flintridge (California’s 28th Congressional District map).
He sees the AIDS/LifeCycle ride as an important function for any civic minded person:
I did have the opportunity to speak at the closing ceremony last year which was a real treat – it was a real moving event. I remember saying to myself that, if the week the ride takes place coincides with a recess week where we didn’t have any votes, than I would love to do it.
AIDS/LifeCycle is a fully supported, 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS. It will take place June 1st through June 7th, 2014.
