In October, we told you the story of Ray Spooner, the Urbana man with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, who was embarking on a bike ride across the country to raise money and awareness for ALS research.  Ray is back home after finishing his ride, though it was anything but smooth.  As Illinois Public Media’s Brian Moline learned this week, Ray’s “little ride” has turned into something much bigger.
