Put your hands together for the members of the Investors’ Bank Bike 4 Friendship Men’s Cycling Team trip for completing an epic journey of more than 3,100 miles from the shores of San Diego to the shores of Brighton Beach. The team, ranging in age from 16 to 42, raised funds for the Friendship Circle, which assists children with special needs.

The do-gooding fund-raisers put their pedal to the metal on June 28 on a beach in San Diego, Calif., and rode between 90 to 120 miles a day. The guys trekked through deserts, over the Rocky Mountains, and through the highways and by-ways of America to land in Brighton on Aug. 9.

The $150,000 raised will benefit the five chapters of the Friendship Circle in New York City, including one in Crown Heights. The nonprofit organization assists children with special needs and their families by recruiting teen boys and girls who build caring friendships with each child.

Standing O says “Welcome home!”

Investors Bank, [272 Brighton Beach Ave. in Brighton Beach, (718) 648–1371].
