Journey of Hope cycles in Toledo

Cyclists and members of Pi Kappa Phi ride down Central Avenue on the `Journey of Hope' to raise money for people with disabilities.

About 70 riders from 30 colleges are cycling across the nation on a 4,000-mile journey.

The riders, who left San Francisco June 1, will be in Sandusky today.

The trek is a project of Push America, a nonprofit organization in Charlotte, N.C, serving people with disabilities. The student cyclists average 70 miles a day and will visit 104 cities before reaching Washington Aug. 11. Two teams are involved in the project.
