Based on his love of winter bike riding, you might not guess that Peter Cheung was born and raised on the tropical island of Aruba. Before bicycles, Peter’s two-wheeled obsession was motorcycles.

Eric and I both work at the Boston non-profit AIDS Action Committee, where our bikes are often parked next to one another. Eric has worked at AAC for over 17 years and volunteered there for longer. Eric runs the HIV/AIDS Health Library, which contains over 200 articles about a range of subjects relating to HIV and AIDS. From those articles are at least 5,000 links to current fact sheets, articles, and reports on HIV, viral hepatitis, and related health topics.
