East Coast cyclists hit area on their way to West Coast


LAKE LILLIAN -- As supper time approached Tuesday, so did 27 bicyclists ready to join area residents for a meal, some conversation and a chance to rest.

The cyclists had pedaled 89 miles from Minneapolis, but that was a just a little more riding than a typical day for the group of mostly college students.

They have been riding their bikes most days since they left Baltimore in late May with a goal of covering the more than 4,000 miles to Seattle in 70 days.
