A local bike club returns to the streets


A local bicycle club will be back on the streets this year after a several year break.

The Franklin Flyers is based in Hampton. They invite riders of all levels to go riding with them on a weekly basis.

“It doesn’t matter if you are a Ragbrai rider or someone who just likes to be outdoors,” says club organizer Wayne Pralle.

Once they were 20 members strong, but it all fizzled out a few years ago due to road construction when riders didn’t have many places to go and safety was a concern.

Now, there’s a new trail to ride on, and roads are open. Pralle encourages people to join for the exercise benefit as well as family bonding. To join, visit their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/franklinflyersbicycleclub.
