HERKIMER, NY – The Fuller Center for Housing Bike Tour made a rest stop in Herkimer Monday.

They spent the night at the First United Methodist Church on North Prospect Street.

The group of approximately 24 riders started the tour in Oregon back in June.

Along the way, they stop in different communities to help build homes for needy families.

Those families help out by contributing what is called sweat equity.

Anne Frey says besides helping out those in need, she gets a chance to see the country in a way very few people do.

“You see the scenery. You see the people along the way. You see the plants and the decorations people have in their yards. Trees. Rocks. Clouds. Everything you would like to look at but would ignore if you were in a car on an interstate just zooming through.”

Each leg of the tour goes about 20 miles.

The riders expect to finish up in Maine on Saturday.
