Thank you for visiting. With encouragement from my sister Sue, I have decided to join the tour. I will be starting my journey in Grand Rapids, MN, going through Iron River WI, the town I call home and finishing with the Sunday worship service at my home church as the tour makes a weekend stop in Ashland, WI. While I am not new to long distance cycling I am new to fund raising, so I appreciate all the help I can get. I do want to help fight poverty one person, one family or one community at a time, so thank you for your support and helping those affected by poverty both in Ashland and around the world. Thanks again, Jim Fridsma from Iron River WI.
