That's right! The man who rode 3,500 on his bicycle last year is at it again— but with a twist!

This time Lion Mark Mansell will be on a motorcycle instead of a bicycle and he won't be alone! His wife, Lion Debbie Mansell, is going along for the ride. The duo will be riding 9,349 miles through all 48 contiguous states in 24 days. Their journey to raise awareness of Leader Dogs for the Blind begins in LaCenter, Washington (Mark and Debbie's home town) on June 15 and ends in Bakersfield, California on July 8.

Along the way Mark and Debbie will be meeting with Lions Clubs, talking about Leader Dog's programs and raising funds to support those programs.
