A cyclist travels down State Highway 29 west of Wadena Thursday morning as part of the five-day, 300-mile The Ride Across Minnesota (TRAM) event. Nearly 1,000 bikers are taking part in the 21st annual fundraiser which left Alexandria Monday. Some of the other communities the bikers will pass through include Little Falls, Pequot Lakes and Fergus Falls. The riders are raising money to fight multiple sclerosis, a disease which afflicts more than 400,000 people in the United States.
