LIVESTRONG loves Iowa. We love it so much that we’ve had a presence at The Register?s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) every year since 2006. Each year fundraisers don LIVESTRONG jerseys and ride across the state eating pork chops and pie and sharing their cancer stories. This year our mighty team of 88 riders raised almost $200,000 for our mission.

Team LIVESTRONG RAGBRAI got a special treat yesterday. After spending the past few days at the Tour de France, Lance showed up to the campsite and met with the participants. He also plans to meet with several elected officials to discuss the cancer crisis in American and across the globe.

You too can be a part of Team LIVESTRONG. Although we can’t promise that Lance will be at each event, we can promise you’ll have a great time. Go to for more information.

    Bravo! Looks like a fun group of cyclists. This GA gal has done 3 RAGBRAIs, the last one just 3 days after a cancer diagnosis in 2007. I want to return and ride….because I still can…Ride.

    He only met with some of the participants. His showing up was not announced to the entire group that rode with Livestrong… only those few selected who knew he was coming waited that morning for him to show. There were many more that rode with RAGBRAI and Livestrong that is shown in the picture above… that’s about only 1/3… the other 2/3 had left camp already not knowing he was going to show. A bit disappointing.

    1. It was announced by a LIVESTRONG staffer at the team meeting the night before that Lance would be riding in the morning. However, Lance wasn’t showing up until 9:30am which is late to get started on 77 miles in 95+ heat. We told the team to use their best judgement in staying around to meet up. Sorry you missed him. We hope you had a great time regardless.

    I sure would like to talk to someone who participated on the LIVESTRONG RAGBRAI Team to find out more details on what all is involved. If you could provided more details then e-mail me at ….. Thanks, Chris
