Cyclist Rides Across America
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A stop in Fargo marks the 14th state for one cyclist hoping to bike through all lower 48. And he's biking for a good cause.
Massachusetts native Steve Laskey began his 8,000 mile journey in Washington State in May.
He's zig-zagging through the country -- touching every state -- hoping to end in Maine by Thanksgiving.
Laskey's riding to raise funds for the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
And says he's encountered kindness at every turn on his journey.
Steve Laskey/Biking Across the Country: "I have what I call my road family, also. It's everyone I meet everyday, it's just the words of encouragement, the pats on the back... And they just come up and shake your hand and say good luck."
