The Homeier Road to Recovery is a metric century to benefit the family of Dirk Homeier, a fellow cyclist who was gravely injured in a freak mechanical accident. Since his accident, he's been unable to work to support his wife and six children.

The ride is on Saturday, April 28, in Springfield, IL, and will have a 5K, fun run, silent auction and children's activities. For more information and to register online visit http://dirksroadtorecovery.com/.
