Big Ride Stops in Billings

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Nearly 14 bikers are traveling across the U.S. to raise money for the American Lung Association.

After two weeks of biking, the group took a break in Billings on Sunday. Bikers range in age form 17 to 62. Ride Director, Charlton Durant said it's a lot of work. "They're people who have been cycling for less than a year, and they're riding across the U.S. on their bicycles. They get up every day and do it. It's really amazing to be around them," said Durant.

Durant said the trip started in Seattle and will end in Washington DC on August 3rd. It's a 48-day trip where bikers will cover 12 states. The next stop will be in Hardin on Monday.
