CANNELTON – Mindy Herzog Paulet, daughter of Norman and Judy Herzog of Cannelton, completed the 2011 Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. This is an annual seven-day ride now in its 39th year. It is the oldest, largest and longest bicycle-touring event in the world.
The route averages 472 miles and is not flat. It begins along Iowa’s western border on the Missouri River and ends on the eastern Iowa border at the Mississippi River.
This was Paulet’s first year to ride and she said she thoroughly enjoyed it.
