If you've seen the film Forest Gump then this story is very similar.
Local South Bend native Bill Bihlman is taking on the challenge to bike cross-country solo from San Diego across the nation to the east coast.
The distance is estimated to be 3,500 miles and a total of 7-to-8 weeks to complete.
The route is based upon visiting seven Ray and Joan Kroc Community Centers along the way.
But his journey is for a much bigger cause.
He plans to raise thousands of dollars to The O'Connor House, which is a woman's shelter for unwed women in crisis pregnancies and their children.
"A couple of years ago I decided to ride cross country for just a personal goal," Bihlman explains. "I thought it would be the ultimate challenge. Mind. Body. And spirit. Being a bit entrepreneurial, I thought if I'm going to ride then I'm going to ride for a cause or purpose."
"This charity was ideal. I have a good friend of mine who is involved with the board. So, I proposed to the board of directors that following week and they were very enthusiastic about it," he added.
