Kyle Bryant and a team of 15 cyclists will arrive at the Las Vegas Flamingo Hotel, North Tour Lobby Entrance, Thursday March 27 at noon, completing a 600+ miles cross-country journey to draw attention and raise research funds to find a cure for the rare neuromuscular disorder Friedreich's ataxia.
"There is a new optimism in our community of Ataxians that we can beat FA," said Bryant. "I am one of the lucky few who still has considerable ability. I plan to take advantage of my ability as long as I can."
The riders began their journey March 15 from the California state capitol in Sacramento. The first day approximately 50 riders and 150 supporters participated, and a core group of 15 riders have continued on with the cross-country journey.
