Bike Riding 60 miles in a day isn't something most people would do for enjoyment.
Two men are riding 60 miles a day for 50 days to raise money for Habitat for Humanity.
Meet Bob Frick and Len Holmes. Both are in their seventies and doing something many people half their age would never think to do. "W feel extremely fortunate to be able to do this at our age and to be able to make the contribution that Bob's solicitations and my small solicitations that I've been able to make is just very rewarding." They're traveling the Return Route of the Lewis and Clark expedition from 1806--and along the way they are hoping to earn a very large chunk of money for Habitat for Humanity. "Our goal was $145,000 which is a summation of his age and mine. 70 plus 75 is 145." Already hitting about 114,000 dollars from sponsors they can still use some help reaching their final goal. The 3000 mile excursion from Astoria Oregon to St Louis Missouri isn't their first cross country trip showing why "We're not on crazy guy on a bike for nothing." Both have done a coast to coast ride once before--bob's was for the same cause. "I did one in 2007 from San Francisco to Bar Harbor, Maine and up into Quebec and Bob I in 2008 I got acquainted with Habitat for Humanity which is the driver behind this and went from San Diego, California to St. Augustine, Florida". As they continue their travels along the Missouri River they will hit their final destination on August 18th. In Bismarck, Jon Schaeffer-KXNEWS.
