Bike 2 Believe Group Begins Their Journey

Posted: Updated:
What started as three friends joking about biking across the country turned into a movement, and after ten months of rigorous training, the big day finally arrived. 

Joe Berger, Brock Schauer and Devin Coyle set off on their 25 hundred mile bike trip to Saint Petersburg Florida early this afternoon. The three Mandan natives are making the grueling tour in order to raise awareness and funding for cancer research and treatment.

So far, the Bike to Believe trio has raised more than $130,000. A send off party was held today at the University of Mary prior to the bikers starting their first leg of the trip to Jamestown. And they say it's the least they can do for everyone who has been affected by cancer. 
"You know what we all have a deep passion for helping people and everyone is affected by cancer in some way shape or form. We're all personally affected," says biker, Joe Berger. 

"The way I look at it is this 2,500 mile bike trip is going to be nothing compared to the hours, and hours and hours that these people are spending in the cancer clinics fighting for their lives so it's nothing in comparison," says biker, Brock Schauer. 
2,500 miles is nothing compared to 2,500 hours in a hospital," says biker, Devin Coyle. 

The bikers say they're hoping to ride between 60 to 70 miles a day, and should be to their destination in 45 to 50 days.
