Although RAGBRAI will be leaving Marion County Thursday, another bike tour will be entering Pella Friday. The Sea to Sea Bike Tour is a nine week, 3,900-mile cycling trek across North America designed to raise awareness and funds in support of those living in poverty around the world. Local participants include Lynn Verros and Tanya Mether, who rode from Colorado to Nebraska last week, and Rick Gritters who is riding from Nebraska to Iowa City this week. Approximately 85 cyclists will make the cross country trek sponsored by the Christian Reformed Church and the Reformed Church in America. Riders will spend Friday night in the Central College dorms, before heading East Saturday morning.
