Lt. Col. Jason Dudjak, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa Expeditionary Operations Branch chief, poses next to his bike July 23. Dudjak will make a 425-mile trip, biking from Ramstein to the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. Dudjak has trained four months for this five-day trip. He will bike 60 to 100 miles each day and will be hosted in guest houses along the way for rest and recuperation.
