A group of cyclists, including four from the Chicago area, are taking part in an excursion to see one of the Great Lakes in its entirety – by cycling around Lake Michigan.

From RedEye Chicago:

“The team will pedal nearly 1,000 miles during their 13-day trip, visiting churches and community groups to rally support for their cause along the way. 

The tour will benefit two education-based causes: Chicago’s By The Hand Club and supporting Venture’s community center in Southeast Asia, which offers educational support to underprivileged children… 

Ben Skoda and two other co-leaders will take turns driving a 15 passenger van that’s equipped with a trailer to hold the rider’s equipment. The drivers will go ahead of the bikers, pick up groceries and set up a lunch stop at that day’s halfway point.”
