Chow’s Gymnastics in West Des Moines provided free entertainment to RAGBRAI riders passing by Tuesday.

Students performed tumbling outside the gym, which sits along the route.

The gym is home to Olympic gold medalists Gabby Douglas and Shawn Johnson. The girls say Gabby took pictures for a few minutes, but then went inside to train.

The riders took pictures with the girls and big costume Olympic medals.

“So I just think it’s fun to meet new people,” says gymnast Hannah Paustian.

The girls were also selling Gatorade, water and of course — pie.
