A cross-country trip by car is one thing.

Imagine a cross-country trip by bicycle.

A group from 'Push America' is doing it.

It's a program from the Phi Kappa Phi Fraternity.

They're biking from Seattle to Washington DC.

The group stopped in Lexington Tuesday for a 2 day visit.

The goal is to raise awareness and money for people with disabilities.

They stopped at 'Latitute Arts Tuesday.

'Push America' says it expects to raise a half a million dollars during this nine-week trip.

The group says it's raised $15 million since 1977.
