Team Wal-mart expected to roll in this afternoon

The Team Wal-mart caravan of bike-riding store managers and support vehicles is expected to roll into Biloxi via U.S. 90 this afternoon between 2 and 2:30, bringing down the curtain on a 300-mile trek that crisscrossed the Mississippi Gulf Coast to raise money for the Salvation Army to provide 100,000 bikes for Christmas.

The group, which departed Pass Christian this morning, will turn off U.S. 90 at Caillavet Street and travel Division Street to Yankie Stadium, where the drive began last weekend.
