A 67-year-old cyclist's 12,000 mile journey has taken him to our neck of the woods. After 124 days on the road, animal lover Floyd Lampart is nearing the finish line of his longest ride yet. Lampart hit the road April 4 from his home in New York to begin riding around the perimeter of the United States, that's the equivalent of a trip halfway around the world. Monday, Lampart finished his trek through North Dakota. He rode through Greenbush and Roseau Tuesday before ending the evening in Warroad. He's doing all of this in hopes to raise more than $100,000 to benefit a Utah organization, the Best Friends Animal Society.
