Bike to end division is dedicated to pulling Americans together through a common cause and tapping into our better natures. This year John Poplett, the site’s sponsor, attempted to ride a bike around Lake Michigan to raise money for West Town Bikes, a youth development program on Chicago’s West Side. Read more about his adventure on the site blog.

John Poplett is a writer and avid cyclist. He grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, a village right next to Chicago’s West Side.
