ABC7 Paul Meincke raises funds for Boy Scouts on coast-to-coast bicycle trip

July 2, 2012 (CHICAGO)

"We're almost to the halfway point across the country. I'm on a county road, wind at my back, doing 25. No effort. This is fabulous, just fabulous," he said.

This weekend, Paul reached that halfway point just outside McPherson, Kansas. He expects to end his trip later this month in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, a distance of more than 3,800 miles.

Paul is using the ride to raise money for the Boy Scouts.
