Gary Price spotted This Story out of Iowa on Betty Collins, a Muscatine children's librarian who is setting out today from the Council Bluffs Public Library on her folding Dahon bike across the state to bring awareness to blighted Iowa libraries.Starting her journey just as RAGBRAI finishes, Collins was tempted to call her journey LAGBRAI. As a former "avid cyclist," Collins quit riding as often because she is a working mother of three.
