Funeral Ride for Iris Stagner

Butch Stagner greets riders at Iris's memorial ride.To honor our friend, colleague, and fellow cyclist Iris Stagner, friends of Iris and BikeTexas hosted a memorial ride in Mineral Wells at 1:00 pm on Friday, September 21, 2012, one hour before funeral services for Iris at Indian Creek Baptist Church in Mineral Wells.

The five-mile ride started from the parking lot of the Palo Pinto General Hospital. The ride headed west on US 180, past the site of the crash that took Iris from us, and then proceeded to the nearby church. Cyclists lined up on Indian Creek Road in front of the church for the arrival of the funeral procession. The Palo Pinto County Sheriff's Department provided escort and traffic control for the ride.

About 75 friends of Iris came out for her ride. Butch Stagner, Iris's husband, greeted riders and thanked them for their support.

According to an article in Individual.com, the Mineral Wells Stage Race will be renamed the Iris Stagner Memorial Stage Race.
