Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong is expected to take part in a trek across Iowa that will end in Fort Madison.
Armstrong told the Des Moines Register that he and the staff from his Austin, Texas bicycle shop will take part in the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa.
The seven-day trek, also known as
, begins July 21 in Council Bluffs and is expected to end July 27 in Fort Madison.
Armstrong's year kicked off with a televised interview with Oprah Winfrey where the seven-time Tour de France winner admitted to doping.
The Lee County Sheriff's Office released a statement Wednesday in an attempt to dispel rumors that numerous county roads would be closed in Lee County during the event.
"No roads will be closed during this event," Sheriff Jim Sholl said.
