Cindy Stark-Stewart celebrated her 52nd birthday while participating in the 39th annual RAGBRAI cycling event in Iowa.RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa) is held each year during the last week of July. Cyclists begin by dipping their back tire into the Missouri River and ride across Iowa (with temperatures typically exceeding 100 degrees) to dip their front tire into the Mississippi River. This year’s route started in Glenwood, Iowa, on July 24 and finished in Davenport, Iowa, on July 30. Not only did Cindy ride all of the 450-mile route, she and teammates from Team FCA Endurance completed the Karras Century Loop, which consisted of riding 100 miles in one day. The total distance rode was 479.2 miles, with an average of 68 miles per day. Hope you had a wonderful birthday. We are so proud of you.
