CONEY ISLAND - Bicycle riders have trekked from San Diego all the way to Coney Island in just six weeks to raise money for kids with special needs.

The Bike for Friendship initiative is a grueling cross-country bike trip put on by Investors Bank and Friendship Circle.

The cyclists arrived to a warm welcome from family, friends and previous Bike for Friendship riders.

To cap off the homecoming, the bikers dipped their tires in the Atlantic Ocean in Coney Island. They had similarly dipped their tires in the Pacific Ocean before they left California.
