RAGBRAI is almost here! It’s so close we can almost smell the bike tires and open road. Everyone has trained hard and we’re all finally ready to ride across Iowa together!

Don’t forget to stop by our booth at each host town to check your heart numbers to be sure your heart is in tip top shape. We will be next to the RAGBRAI stop in partnership with the American Heart Association and Hy Vee.

We know all of you are heart-rate nerds like us, so stop by every day to see how your blood pressure is doing throughout the ride. And you won’t just get your numbers if you stop, we will have a healthy snack and some cold water ready for you! Both are super important to maintain your heart healthiness throughout the ride, so don’t forget to hydrate.

Education is a main part of why we ride. We want to let our community know about the risks and signs of heart disease to prevent tragedy. We want to talk with you about your heart disease risk factors so you can recognize symptoms early.

When my dad suffered his heart attack, he just “didn’t feel right.”

Our dear friend Charron died from heart disease way too young. He LOVED RAGBRAI and was such an intrigal part of the ride each year. He’s why we ride. In honor of his memory, we are spreading the message of heart health.

Sharing our story and learning about yours is why we are a part of RAGBRAI. Let us help you make sure your heart is in check. Let us help you know your heart. Know your heart.  Know the signs.  Know your body.  Know your numbers.

Ride safe. Ride smart. Ride healthy. AND……have a great time!
