“This is how we enjoy our summer,” Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure leader Connor Ciment tells the Springfield News-Sun, which caught up with the fundraising and awareness-building cyclists Wednesday in Springfield, Ohio, where Orange Ride cyclists (the first of two batches of cyclists on this year’s record-breaking ride) were repairing a roof with the Clark County Fuller Center for Housing. “Cycling is a passion of all of ours and we really enjoy pairing it with a service-filled mission such as this.”
The 3,500-mile Adventure from Seattle to Washington, D.C., concludes on Aug. 13. The ride set out to raise $250,000 for The Fuller Center’s work but already has surpassed $283,000. The cyclists have set a new goal to raise $300,000. Click here to help them reach it!
