Bicyclists Raise Money and Awareness

A group of bicyclists on a cross-country ride to benefit people with disabilities peddled into Omaha Thursday.

Their trip started in San Francisco and will end in Washington D.C.

Thirty-six riders forming the Journey of Hope rode onto the grounds at the Paralyzed Vets of America near 76th and Maple. The cyclists are riding to raise money and awareness for people with disabilities.

Rider Scott Martin said, “Many of us are so lucky to be here, ride our bikes. And the people that we meet are lucky to do some of the simple tasks that we take for granted every day.”

Each rider raised at least $5,500. Many raised much more.
