ADEAL, GA (WALB) - The "Pedaling Pastor" is returning home tomorrow after a 700-mile bike ride around the Georgia.

Pastor Chris Newbern from First Assembly of God in Adel, started his journey a couple weeks ago traveling through state parks to raise money for local charities and to shed light on other issues.

He'll end his ride at Reed Bingham State Park tomorrow at 3 p.m. The park says bring your bike out.

Safety courses, tours through park and animal programs will be available for families.
