An unidentified member of the USAF Cycling Team arrives in Shellsburg, Iowa on day 5 of RAGBRAI 2012. The AF Cycling Team is made up with active duty, National Guard, Reserve and retired members. The 88-member team rode RAGBRAI 2012 and helped riders who were disabled and stopped along the way. RAGBRAI is The Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa; the largest and longest organized bicycle ride in the world. This year's weeklong ride covered 471 miles starting in Sioux City and ending in Clinton, Iowa. The AF Cycling team meets riders every day and spreads a positive message to each person they assist along the way.
