A team of 70 cyclists, all with some sort of physical disability, will pedal across Iowa on the week-long bicycle ride known as RAGBRAI starting this coming weekend.

Hannah Lundeen is the coordinator of Adaptive Sports Iowa, which is fielding its ninth annual team on the grueling ride. Lundeen says she’s impressed by all of the team members, especially the hand cyclists.

“Our legs are so much more powerful than our arm muscles,” Lundeen says. “They have to train so much more than anyone using their legs. Plus, they’re so much lower to the ground and have to power through those hills using just their arms is a feat in itself.”
