BROOKLYN - After traveling about 650 miles across the country, seven cyclists finally made it to the finish line in Brooklyn, and it was all for a good cause.

Friends and family were among the huge crowd gathered in Borough Park, congratulating the cyclists on their journey from Michigan to New York City.

The ride benefits Friendship Circle, a nonprofit that helps families with special-needs children.

This was the third year that the trip was held. Last year's trek was from Seattle to Los Angeles, and Miami to New York City the year before.
