Lincoln University(Jefferson City, MO) -Lincoln University Foundation President Victor Pasley will finish a 1400-mile fundraising bicycle tour in Jefferson City on Thursday, June 18.  Pasley, who began the Pathway to Greatness 1866-2009 tour on April 25 in Rochester, New York, is scheduled to arrive at the North Jefferson City Pavilion at 10 a.m.  Local cyclists are welcome to join Pasley as he rides the final miles to the Lincoln University campus.  Pasley is expected to reach the finish line at the entrance to Lincoln University along Lafayette Street at approximately 10:30 a.m.  A celebration, including music, presentations and refreshments will begin at 11 a.m. at Scruggs University Center (819 Chestnut Street).  Informational booths will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  
A cycling enthusiast, Pasley decided the tour would be an exciting way to raise $1 million to fund scholarships for Lincoln University students.  The 1968 graduate of Lincoln University says he and his wife Pamela have been longtime supporters of their alma mater, but were looking for something to make a bigger impact.  

 Since leaving Rochester, Pasley has been hosted by alumni in cities along the tour route.  His first stop was May 2 in Cleveland.  From there he traveled to Detroit (May 16); Chicago (May 30); Indianapolis (June 6) and St. Louis (June 13). 

Events in those cities included cycling and spinning events, as well as health fairs.
