Since 2009, the family and friends of Mindy Bruellman and Chris Gearhart have held an annual bicycle ride. This bike ride has been dedicated to Mindy Bruellman, daughter  of John and Cindy Bruellman. Mindy, a beautiful 17-year-old girl, was killed along side her boyfriend Chris Gearhart, son of Glenn and Mary Gearhart, in a car accident suddenly in August of 2008.

On the third Saturday of June, the ride starts bright and early in West Bend, Iowa and tours the beautiful countryside of Northern Iowa. With a variety of routes, this ride is made for any level of cyclist, from those wanting to just enjoy themselves to those who are biking enthusiasts. 

Mindy's Miles is meant to be a day where families, friends and complete strangers can gather and enjoy a wonderful June day. There will be many stops along the way so you can get off and enjoy what they have to offer. This is not a race, we encourage people of all ages, riding abilities, and strengths to participate in this day filled with cycling, socializing, and enjoying what Northern Iowa has to offer.
