"Backdrafters" pedal for charity
In 1996, Doug Lange (3rd from left) started the "Backdrafters" bike team in Eagan. A former firefighter, he and others gather for biking and especially to raise $$$ for Multiple Sclerosis. During the recent 150 mile, 2 day annual MS ride from Duluth to the Twin Cities, over 100 team riders raised almost $70,000 in sponsoring pledges.
