This summer, the route for the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa—or RAGBRAI—traveled through the Quad-City area. Sponsored by the Des Moines Register, this year’s RAGBRAI featured an estimated 15,000 riders. And when the race reached Tipton, Iowa, on July 25, 12 students from the Davenport Campus Sports Council met 115 road-weary participants. Free chiropractic care was provided to them in special booths on the property of Mark Niles, D.C., Davenport ’82, who sponsored the event.

“Our work at RAGBRAI was a great success,” said Sports Council Faculty Advisor Ranier Pavlicek, D.C., Davenport ’01. “Everyone did a fantastic job, from the students to faculty and especially Dr. Niles.”

“I can’t thank Dr. Niles enough,” said Davenport Campus Faculty Clinician Susan Larkin, D.C., Davenport ’82, who supervised students at the event. “He not only gave us a place to work, but introduced us to town volunteers and provided us lunch.”
