HURON — On Tuesday a group of over 30 bicyclists from all over the world, on their way to the East Coast, stopped for a break at Memorial Park and Putters and Scoops in Huron.

Guided by the tour company “Cycle America,” the cyclists signed up for a tour that would take them from their starting place in Everett, Wash., to their final destination in Glouster, Massachusetts.

“A great thing about it is that you can eat whatever you want,” said Terry Wiechert from Calgary, Alberta, who has cycled across America three times previously. “You burn about 6,000 calories a day. So you can eat ice cream, fries, whatever.”

Wiechert, Ken Coburn, also of Calgary, Alberta and Jos Kunnen of Wellington, New Zealand said they enjoyed seeing monuments and famous landmarks such as the Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, Needles Highway and Mount Rushmore, among many others.
