Transcript for 'Election Cycle': Journey Across America
And here at ABC news we're following the election cycle. Stay with us here, cycle literally, our producer Michael Koenigs pedaling between the conventions between voters and meeting voters along the way. He arrived just moments ago. Go figure. Here's a look at his journey. This year's conventions are go big or go home. We're going to win, we're going to win so big, thank you very much, everybody. I may become the first woman president. Reporter: But one brave soul is giving new meaning to political spin. I'm Michael and this is the election cycle. Reporter: Our very own digital correspondent Michael Koenigs. Psych I willest? I am. The election cyclist. Reporter: Biking from the republican convention in Cleveland. Want to talk to Americans who weren't in this room. Reporter: To the democratic convention in philly. Michael traveling 500 miles in five days. Who are you guys voting for. Trump. Hillary Clinton. Bernie sanders. No, you're not. Even hitching a ride with these nuns on a convention bound bus. The least we could do was to give you a lift just a little bit to rest up. Catholic charities. Reporter: And overnight -- the election cyclist finally coasting into philly ready to enter the dnc ring. Coasting here into convention hall. There he is. You made it. You made it. Long ride. Oh, yeah. You didn't hear that -- nice to see you, Michael. Airfares are down. Gasoline at an all-time low. You decided to ride a bike from Cleveland here. What was the reason behind this? Why did you want to do this? Very cheap. Way to get here but mainly I wanted to talk to the folk as long the way, in between these two arena, the people who can't be here because ultimately they decide this election and they're just incredibly passionate about what goes on and so I wanted to hear them along the way. So was it as much fun as you hoped it would be and what did you learn. It was much more fun. I learned one day we stopped in Pittsburgh for a pirates game and met voters from the highest seats to the lowest and just hearing their thoughts and their passion for this election cycle, it is at a high level. Everybody is paying attention. How is that wrestling hatch? You show up dressed like that and what happens? I think they saw me in this tight outfit and said step into the ring and, yeah. These folks, local community of semipro wrestlers had me jump on board and the mayor, an 82-year-old woman at the fights. You're smiling right now. Any trouble along the way? Well, there are a lot of potholes out there so we got to take care of some of those infrastructure questions and the heat wave was a big factor. My mom calling me. Stay hydrated. So I think those were the main concerns, pokemon go players also popping up on the trail at random spots. Crazy. You had to keep from hitting them. Exactly. Talking to the average voter along the way, what did you hear from them, Michael? I think that a lot of people are a little concerned about the two choices they have. There is a real rock and a hard place sensibility and a lot of that country from the farmlands to the city streets and so they know it's a tough choice and they're paying attention to these conventions. A great idea. We're glad you did it. Thanks. Nice finish. Get some rest. Get some rest. Two more days to go here from philly. We'll be here, "World news" ," as well, and "Nightline." Tonight borrow borrow and vp Biden and vice presidential candidate Tim kaine. We'll have it all. Full day. Full day and gavel-to-gavel coverage on our livestream channel and I don't worry.
