2019 Team Breakthrough Choose Your Own

Guest Driver



Team “Guest Driver” will again this summer take on the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa.  “RAGBRAI” This 47th edition of the ride will take place July 21st-27th and consist of 427 miles of Iowa’s best sights, sounds, and smells. We will be starting in Council Bluffs and ride through Atlantic, Winterset, Indianola, Centerville, Fairfield, Burlington, and ending in Keokuk. Once we arrive Keokuk, we will end with the traditional dipping our front wheels in the mighty Mississippi River. 

This year however, takes on a special meaning for our team. One of our 2017 team members Sarah Gross will not be riding with us.  In 2018 Sarah was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme “GBM”. This has been a life changing event for Sarah and she is certainly fighting the battle with true grit and strength.

As a result, team “Guest Driver” has decided to raise research monies for the American Brain Tumor Association “ABTA” in honor of Sarah. Please join us with a donation to the ABTA to help with research and support for Sarah and all the others affected by this disease. When we arrive Keokuk on the 27th, we will celebrate the end of the ride and say a special thanks to all of you that are willing to help in our cause!
