48 states in 48 days

Some people go the beach when they graduate from college.

Phil Nagle is opting instead for a summer of suffering.

Nagle, 23, of Tipp City is graduating next month from the University of Cincinnati’s architectural engineering program. But before he returns to UC in the fall to finish a second major in construction management, he hopes to have done something no one has ever done before.

Nagle is planning to leave 
July 6 on an epic 8,000-mile bike trip through 48 states in 48 days. He hopes to raise $48,000 for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society and land a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
