That day, Rea, who has been an Inquirer movie critic since 1992 and a biking enthusiast for even longer, started to archive the pictures of silver-screen darlings on two wheels for a blog, which he named "Rides a Bike.

And then Woodroof is told he has HIV, and has, at most, 30 days to live. "Frankly, we're surprised you're even alive," the doctors in the hospital say.
