By Carla Garnett

Cold and Wet, But Fun
NIH'er Pedals Across Alaska for a Cause

By Rich McManus

Trevor Lubbert bikes Alaska.

Even though he is back at work now as an entomologist in the Division of Safety, Trevor Lubbert is not completely done yet with the 500-mile Alaska AIDS Vaccine Ride, a bike tour he took Aug. 21-26, stretching from Fairbanks to downtown Anchorage. That's because he still owes thank-you notes to the many donors — including some here at NIH — who pledged a total of $4,300 to his effort, and because, as the father of a young girl, he is fearful of a world in which a killer virus goes unchecked. And quite frankly, it's also because he isn't done shivering yet at memories of a cold, wet ride marred by almost daily rainfall, prying winds and the unthinkable — especially for a native of Maryland — onset of winter in mid-August.
