Statewide cycling tour ends in Cincinnati

The fifth annual Pan Ohio Hope Ride rolled into the Queen City on Sunday with nearly 450 participants.

The four day cycling tour from Cleveland to Cincinnati featured "Hope Riders" raising funds for the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodges and other programs.

During the statewide ride, cyclists traveled to different cities and spent their nights on college campuses. The fourth day started at Wittenberg University in Springfield before ending at Yeatman's Cove in Cincinnati more than 87 miles later.

Hope Lodges in Cleveland and Cincinnati provide supportive, comfortable, no-cost lodging for cancer patients who travel to those cities for treatment.
