People come from all over the world to ride their bikes across Iowa together for one week in July for the past 43 years. (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa)
About 15,000 bikers make their way on the designated route, and this year one of the towns they rode through was just a little north of our house.
Food stands and entertainment were available as well as some shade and encouragement from the locals.
If I ever go on this ride, this would be my choice. (The back seat rider wasn't pedaling much of the time and it looked easier on the rear end!)
Not sure why this skeleton is taking the back seat on this tandem, but it was interesting.
