A retired FBI special agent is riding a bike across the country with his wife to raise money and awareness for a nonprofit that assists surviving family members of fallen law enforcement personnel, the Syracuse Post-Standard reports.

Jim Caverly, who retired in 1999 after 27 years at the FBI, started his trip May 25 in Oregon and is expected to finish in Bar Harbor, Maine, at the end of the month.

The cause is for Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS), for which Caverly, 69, and his wife Jeanne worked as grief counselors since 1990.

Famed Cyclist Lance Armstrong Faces New Doping Charges

World-renowned cyclist Lance Armstrong faces dope charges that could lead to him losing his seven Tour de Frances titles, the New York Times reports.

The 40-year-old athlete, who has been accused of doping for more than a decade, dismissed the charges as “a witch hunt.”

If convicted, the United States Anti-Doping Agency could impose a lifetime ban on any sports that are signatories of the quasi-governmental organization that oversees antidoping efforts primarily in Olympic sports.  The U.S. Attorney in Los Angeles recently dropped any efforts to try and criminally charge him.

Armstrong is accused of using the blood-booster EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone, corticosteroids and other masking agents.
