Congratulations to Team Gay City for STP Bicycle Classic

by James Whitely - SGN Staff Writer

Last weekend, on July 17 and 18, 11 riders made the trek from Seattle to Portland as part of Team Gay City in the STP (Seattle to Portland) Bicycle Classic. Team Gay City rode more than 200 miles in two days and raised over $13,000 in pledges for the programs and services of Gay City Health Project.

Gay City would like to give thanks to the riders, support crew, and everyone who sponsored the team with a donation.

The STP is an annual one- and two-day bicycle ride from Seattle, Washington to Portland, Oregon. The STP is considered one of the 10 biggest recreational bicycle rides in the country and is the largest multi-day ride in the Pacific Northwest. Ten thousand riders participated.

"Just over one-third of this year's Team Gay City are doing the STP for their first time this year - myself included," said Peter Jabin, deputy director of Gay City Health Project, before the ride.

"It was grueling and extremely rewarding. I almost can't believe I did the whole thing, I'd never ridden that length before," Jabin told SGN.

"It was quite an amazing bonding experience with the team members," he added.

The team will begin their training regimen again next month to stay in shape for next year's STP.

This is the third year that Gay City Health Project has put together a team, consisting of volunteers and supporters, for the STP. According to Jabin, after last week's ride, Team Gay City has now raised more than $35,000 in pledges since their first ride in 2008.

Gay City Health Project is a multicultural Gay men's health organization and the leading provider of HIV and STD testing in King County. Their mission is to promote Gay and Bisexual men's health and prevent HIV transmission by building community, fostering communication and nurturing self-esteem.
