HENLOPEN STATE PARK, DELAWARE – Cindy Norris, America’s Cycling Grandmother from Reno, Nevada completed her mission of riding 3,328.55-miles to raise awareness and money for scholarships for veterans’ charity, the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). She is the oldest woman to complete this lengthy journey, which enabled her to set a new Guinness World Record.

“The Special Operations Warrior Foundation is truly thankful to Cindy Norris and her husband Rick for their efforts on behalf of our organization. Cindy has demonstrated, that as the saying goes if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything. Bicycling across the country at 67 years old is an incredible feat and now a new world record – we congratulate Cindy and thank Rick for his involvement and his service to our country,” said Major General (Ret) Clay Hutmacher, President, and CEO of Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

Time spent on her bike got Cindy’s wheels turning to find a way to raise money and awareness for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation’s (SOWF) “cradle to college” scholarship initiative. The gregarious grandmother received coaching and training from numerous world-renown cycling experts – and their advice worked, as she pedaled her way into the history books.
