Ride Across Indiana
Every year, thousands of bicyclists gather for Ride Across Indiana (RAIN), a one-day, 160-mile-long trek over the gentle rolling hills of southern Indiana, spanning the entire width of the state. A team of eight from Fleetwood RV and supplier Freightliner Custom Chassis participated in this year's event, including Fleetwood RV President and CEO, John Draheim.
From Terre Haute to Richmond, the route mostly follows Historic National Route 40, passing through the heart of Indiana. Sponsored by the Bloomington Bicycle Club, RAIN has been held every year for the last 27 years. All events by the Bloomington organization benefit various cycling education and community programs in Indiana.
The weather cooperated and made for a great day for a long bike ride. Significant headwinds the majority of the day did make for a more challenging experience for all. A Fleetwood Excursion acted as the team's support vehicle and the long day was wrapped up with the entire team camping in several motorhomes near end-point of the ride.
