On the weekends one will often find Deyon Jonson in Marin helping first time AIDS/LifeCycle participants on their training rides as she volunteers as a training ride leader. She can often be spotted wearing the bright orange identifier TRL vest, or as some participants prefer to call it, the beacon of hope.

Deyon, a former Board Member and active member of the Positive Pedalers, has a personal aim to eliminate the stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS. Deyon has been riding with and supporting the Positive Pedalers for years as an HIV negative participant. She first chose to ride and"identify" as a Positive Pedaler on five years ago. It was that experience of being treated differently because of the jersey she chose to wear that convinced her that more effort was needed to remove the stigma surrounding this terrible Pandemic.

Off the bike, Deyon has more than 20 years of management experience in the production industry and is currently following the shift that has occurred in how people spend their "downtime". She is part of the new entertainment industry incorporating collaborative participation brought about by the convergence of gaming, social media, entertainment, and education.
