FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A local teacher is planning a bike trek across the U.S. to benefit a Fargo-based nonprofit dedicated to inspiring teenagers to complete high school.

Paul Shol, who teaches algebra to 9th graders at Fargo North High School, already has begun training for his trip next summer. He's hoping to raise thousands of dollars for the Legacy Children's Foundation to help diverse, low-income students in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Shol tells WDAY-TV (http://bit.ly/1m6HBk4 ) that the cross-country journey will be a "change of pace" after riding on Fargo's flat roads.

He normally rides his bike to and from school and has participated in triathlons.
