WEST FARGO – Riding bike is a spiritual journey for Vicki Schmidt, whether it’s a simple spin around a West Fargo block or the euphoric rush descending Minnesota’s 57-mile Gunflint Trail.


“I’m a leisure biker,” said Schmidt, who lives in West Fargo. “It’s a recreational thing.”

But her purpose is multi-fold: It’s a time to reflect on creation’s beauty, sing, pray, help those struggling in life and raise awareness of social injustice.
