Denise Warner of Tolono tried exercising to workout videos. She tried various group fitness classes. She tried an online beginning running program (for a month). None of it stuck.

The weeklong bike ride through Minnesota has been a summer tradition for Jeri Lake and her family, part of their lives since 1996. They have all ridden the Habitat 500 Bike Ride — a seven-day, 500-mile ride to raise money for Habitat for Humanity — at least once, and they’ve also volunteered as part of the ride’s support crew.
