RAIN riders ready for this weekend
The Bloomington Bicycle Club's annual bike Ride Across Indiana is Saturday.
Details are here: http://bloomingtonbicycleclub.org/events.php
This blog is not officially connected with the ride. We are journalism instructors providing text, photos and video coverage as a public service.
Here's a description from the official website:
"RAIN is an annual ride across the State of Indiana sponsored by the Bloomington Bicycle Club. Saturday, July 16th is the date for 2011. The 156-mile length runs mostly on the Historic National Route 40, an older divided four-lane road with light traffic. It has gentle rolling hills. You should be able to average at least 12 to 14 mph for over 11 hours. All riders must register to participate in RAIN."
