LOCKPORT, NY (WKBW-TV) — Jason Czora is a retired Captain from the Buffalo Fire Department. He's getting ready to take his third, very long bike ride. In his words "there is no better way to see the country, any section of it, then at ten or twelve miles an hour."

His ride will take him along the Erie Canal Bike Trail. Beginning in Lockport, he will work his way up to just south of Portland Maine. As Jason logs up miles he will be raising money for the Response To Love Center. Jason says that the organization is "near to his heart" adding that it "helps people get back on their feet, they help train them in an occupation-and they have a soup kitchen."

Jason's ride will be over five-hundred miles and take him about eight or nine days. He has set up a "Go-Fund Me" account for people who would like to sponsor him. Here's a link to that.
