Cyclists stop in Albany for Fuller Center Bike Adventure
ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Cyclists from near and far laced up their sneakers Wednesday for the Fuller Center Adventure Bike Ride.
Albany was just one of the stops on the more than 3,000-mile journey from Amelia Island, Fla. to Florence, Ore.
This is the 14th year for the ride.
“People have often asked me, why would you do a 3,750-mile ride? And I immediately say, ‘I don’t think about those miles because it’s split up into segments and we do so many segments and then we help a family and that’s a great joy to me,’” explained rider Karen Dejoe.
On Thursday, they will be helping to repair two homes in Albany before resuming their cross-country journey.
