Bicyclists riding to raise awareness about Rett Syndrome

A group of bicyclists is riding to raise awareness about Rett Syndrome.

The group passed through New Iberia earlier today as part of their 2,300-mile cross-country trek.

They are trying to raise $250,000 for research into the syndrome’s cause.

The cyclists are expected to finish their journey next Saturday in Florida.
