Man to bike across U.S. before race

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

PITTSFIELD, Vt. -- A Vermont man planning to ride in a 508-mile bicycle race in California is taking the long way to the starting line. He's pedaling there.

Joe Desena, 39, says he is leaving Monday on his 3,000-mile trip west, which is expected to take about two weeks. He says there's no better way to get in shape for the race than to bike across the country.
