Taking on the Race Across America: Meet Team4HIVHope 2011

December 15, 2011


Steven Berveling

Steven Berveling, Sydney, Australia; Diagnosed May 6, 1992

"I've basically been cycling all my life, but competitively since I was at university in the 1970s. I knew about this race, but became involved in it in earnest once the visa restrictions to the United States were eased in 2010, and I could actually enter the United States lawfully."

Steven works as a barrister (lawyer) specializing in environmental law. He lives in Sydney with his partner of 22 years, Brian, and their 11 dogs (!). ABC Australian National Television profiled Steven regarding his participation in the Race Across America both before the race began and after he'd successfully completed it.
