Ryo Ambe has completed an 8,000-kilometre cycle ride at Dallas Road. The 30-year-old Japanese man from Saitama City near Tokyo arrived in Canada on May 29, and began his trek in Halifax, N.S.

His journey is to show Canadians his appreciation for their support after the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March.

A group of people welcomed him at City Hall at noon Tuesday, and accompanied him to Mile Zero.
