Team BIG rides for Denny

Posted: Updated:

Day 6 of RAGBRAI 44 is bittersweet for the riders of Team BIG. One of their beloved teammates is 'Off Route; and no longer with them.

74-year old Denny Friday of Washington died unexpectedly back in January. 

Denny died only hours after learning his Team BIG would make an overnight stop in his community of Washington.

So, this year, Team BIG riders are wearing special jerseys and ride RAGBRAI 44 in honor and memory of their dear friend and teammate, Denny Friday.

Saturday, Team Big finishes the 419-mile ride in Muscatine, just 49 miles from Denny's hometown. Teammates say Denny will most certainly be with them. Watch the video report on the KWWL News at 10.
