Man bikes across country to Folsom for mental health awareness

After learning his loved one died by suicide, Richard Lima decided to take his bike to the East Coast and ride across the nation raising awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. “It’s prevalent across the country everywhere I go, small town, big city, it doesn’t matter everybody’s got a tie,” said Lima Saturday morning. Having started his trek in North Carolina on June 4, Lima made it to Folsom on Saturday; saying it was a major goal of his to ride through the greater Sacramento area because his loved one called the Valley home.
