Kris Korol (from left), Andrew Lodder and Drew Nylen pose Monday afternoon outside of the Worthington Hy-Vee after stopping for lunch in the midst of their across-the-continent bike ride. The trio began their trip April 3 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and plan to travel toward Halifax, Nova Scotia. “We definitely hope it encourages people,” Lodder said. “We didn’t train or anything.” Their trek can be followed at their Facebook page, “We Bike Because We Can.” Ryan McGaughey/Daily Globe
