Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- A North Carolina man, along with his wife and dog, are on a journey across the country, but not just any journey.

This is Mike Farmer. He's riding his bike across the country to raise money for three charities that are near and dear to his heart, and, oh yeah, he's 70-years-old!

Farmer's journey began on May 20th in Maine, and now, 2-months later, he's here in Fargo.

Farmer doesn't travel alone. His wife, and their guide-dog puppy in training, Quincy, also ride along side him, in the comfort of their air-conditioned RV.

Mike Farmer- www.iBike4Them.org: "That's what I wanted to do again to celebrate my 70th year is ride across the U.S again and as one person told me, because I wanted to."

Mike says he's enjoyed is time in North Dakota so far, he says the cooler weather and the flat landscape have helped make his ride a little easier.
