ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Dozens of bicyclists headed out on a five day trek across the Finger Lakes Wednesday morning for the sixth annual AIDS Red Ribbon Bike Ride.

The 420 mile, five-day journey began in Rochester. The course will take bikers through nine counties, around Cayuga Lake, Fillmore Glen State Park, Watkins Glen and through Stony Brook Park before returning to the Flour City.

Each rider raised a minimum of $1,500 to help those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

One of the bikers is local attorney Peter Pullano. He will pedal his 5,000th mile during this trip in honor of his brother.

“We ride because we want to remember those who we’ve lost. I’m riding for my brother Patrick, I have every year that I’ve done these rides. We ride to help those who need treatment, who need medicines, who need hospice care. The most important thing we do is we ride to raise awareness,” said Pullano.

All proceeds from the event fund the medical care, support services, programs and research provided by Trillium Health.
