A steady stream of bicyclists coming through Iola this week are partaking in the annual Race Across America, a 3,000-mile journey from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md.
Some are doing it for the athletic challenge of completing one of the toughest cycling events in the world a race longer than the Tour de France, and done in less than half the time. (Thats because riders dont stop for rest days.)
Tulsas Bob McKenzie and his teammates are among those doing so for a cause.
