Cyclist Rides Around Country for First Responders

By  | 

A Kentucky man is cycling all around the country to show his appreciation for the brave men and women who risk their lives everyday.

Don Boehley stopped in Tallahassee Tuesday morning. Tallahassee is just one of many cities he's riding through to personally thank firefighters, law enforcement officers and military personnel for putting their lives on the line.

He says he constantly thinks about the brave men and women who risked their lives on 9/11 and never came home to their families.

"We owe something more to our police officers and our troops everyday because they risk their lives saving us and they put their family at risk of losing them."

After Tallahassee, Boehly made a stop in Quincy. So far he's traveled more than 12,000 miles stopping in 32 states. He plans to finish his ride in New York on 9-11-2006.
