Much like Queen, all James Carpenter wants to do is ride his bicycle, bicycle, bicycle. It will be a miracle if the Chamblee resident doesn’t wear out the seat on his bike.
He rides 75 miles during the week nights and logs between 60 and 85 miles on the weekends. He’s not some intense biking enthusiast. (Well, that could be a possibility.) James, in fact, is preparing for a 200-mile round-trip ride this weekend to Camp Eagle Rock in Eatonton, Georgia, in the name of charity.
As part of the tenth anniversary of the Action Cycling AIDS Vaccine 200, James and many other cyclists will be helping raise money to fund AIDS vaccine research for the Emory Vaccine Center.
“This is my first year doing this AV 200 ride, but I’m very excited to be riding,” said James, who will be a part of Team Pedal Pushers. “I believe my greatest challenge will be making sure I can finish both hundred miles on both days.”
