Cyclists pedaled out onto the open road today to discover North Dakota as a part of a bicycling tour.
Bike the Border is a three-day bicycling event that welcomes families to embark on a different route everyday.
This year, Bike the Border is hosting 75 cyclists from the U.S. and Canada
Each night, the cyclists stay over night at camp sites stationed in Bottineau.
Yesterday, bikers traveled to the Peace Garden and today, the bike riders looped around Lake Metigoshe and spent some time at the park.
Tomorrow is the last day of the bike tour and they will pass through Gardena and Kramer before heading back to camp.
Bike the Border Volunteer, Janet Crone says she admires those who participate in the tour.
(Janet Crone, Bike the Border Volunteer)"I think another part of it is the healthy lifestyle. If you've met any of these folks riding, they are an inspiration. Every year I just about go buy a bike after three days because I meet such awesome people."
This is the 8th annual Bike the Border bicycle tour and the first time campers have stayed overnight in the same location for the entire tour.
