Rich Dixon is all smiles as he cycles into Bemidji on Monday afternoon in his first leg of a long-distance ride from Itasca State Park to New Orleans, following the Scenic Highway. Dixon, who is from Fort Collins, Colo., is paralyzed from the waist down because of a spinal cord injury. He is riding an impressive hand cycle, traveling about 40 miles a day, and hopes to make it to New Orleans by the first week of November. Pioneer Photo/Monte Draper
