Cyclists pedaling from Baltimore to Seattle will stop for the night Tuesday at Lake Lillian.
The public is invited join the group riding in the 4K for Cancer tour — and possibly bring a dish or dessert to share — at the town former school building. Anyone interested in greeting, meeting and eating with the riders should show up around 4:30 or 5 p.m. at the school.
By the time they arrive in Lake Lillian, the cyclists will be approaching the halfway point of their ride.
They will have been on the road for 31 of the 70 days it will take them to reach Seattle.
The cyclists ride on behalf of people in their lives who have been affected by cancer. In order to participate in the ride, they must raise at least $4,500.
But they’re not riding every day. Ten of those 70 days are rest days, including the Fourth of July in Minneapolis.
Then they’ll ride the 89 miles to Lake Lillian.
