Local rider to begin long-distance tour to support wounded veterans

Mike Wheeler lives in nearby Akron, and was out on a training ride to yesterday and stopped by the Century Cycles store in Peninsuala. On September 10, he'll be riding from his home to Pittsburgh, where he'll then hop on the Great Allegheny Passage and C&O Canal Towpath Trail to Washington, DC. He's anticipating the trip will take about 10 days.

Through this ride, Mike is raising funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. You can learn more about Mike's ride and how to donate on his Facebook page:

You can see more photos of long-distance touring cyclists who have visited all three of our stores in our Bicycle Touring Photo Gallery.
