Notre Dame dean passes through Craig on cross-country trek

The University of Notre Dame’s dean of the College of Science rode into Craig Tuesday as part of his Road to Discovery bicycle ride. Greg Crawford began his ride on May 21 in Boston, Mass., and has made his way across the country, riding around 80 to 160 miles per day. The ride from Granby to Craig was one of his more difficult, with 120 miles to cover and hills to climb. “It was a long ride today and we had a couple tough hills, plus some serious wind. And it seems like it’s always a head wind. The wind is always in our face,” Crawford said.
