Description

Road

Distance - 444 miles

RAGBRAI®, The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa®, is seven-day leisurely tour from the western border of Iowa to the Mississippi River enjoying the wonderful Iowa scenery and hospitality. RAGBRAI is the oldest, largest and longest multi-day bicycle ride in the United States. The Des Moines Register has coordinated this ride that attracts 10,000 cycling enthusiasts from every state in the nation and several foreign countries. RAGBRAI is a bicycle ride-not a race. It started in 1973 as a six-day ride across the state of Iowa by two Des Moines Register columnists who invited a few friends along. It is held the last full week in July and hosted by The Register's front-page cartoonist, Brian Duffy and a team of Register staffers. RAGBRAI is planned and coordinated by The Des Moines Register, and riders who participate in RAGBRAI understand that they do so at their own risk. The RAGBRAI route averages 471 miles and is not necessarily flat. It begins somewhere along Iowa's western border on the Missouri River and ends along the eastern border on the Mississippi River. We change the route each year and announce the overnight towns the first weekend in February in The Des Moines Register and on our web site at www.ragbrai.org. The people of Iowa truly make RAGBRAI the special event that it is by opening up their towns and communities to participants. We hope you can enjoy this Iowa hospitality and join us for a memorable trip across the state. The cost includes tags, baggage transportation, discounts, sag wagon services, emergency medical services, patch, camping, and daily route maps.
