Brothers Bike Cross Country For A Cause

When many people go for a bike ride it might take them a few hours, but for two brothers that made their way through Sioux City Tuesday, it's taking them 7 weeks.

That is because the Constantino brothers are biking cross country for a cause.

About 2 years ago Pearson Constantino was struck by a car while on his bike, causing many severe injuries including a broken hip.

Now they are riding along Highway 20 to increase awareness of sharing the road with bikers.

"Every year there is about 44,000 car to bike accidents, and about 800 people are killed on their bicycles, and they are completely avoidable," said Pearson Constantino.

The brothers are expecting to get back to their home state of New York by the first week in November.
