It may not be a great day to hit the road for a bike ride, but a few Siouxland communities are gearing up for thousands of cyclists to come to town during this year’s RAGBRAI.
There’s only 163 days until one of the biggest rides throughout Iowa takes off.
Last month, RAGBRAI announced the official route they will be taking across Iowa.
The 48th annual RAGBRAI ride will be starting in Le Mars and making an overnight stay in Storm Lake, before heading east across Iowa.
Storm Lake is in the early stages of planning the entertainment, security measures, and recruiting volunteers.
It’s an opportunity for the town to show Iowa all it has to offer.
“It’s a fun ride. I’ve gone with a few different people and different teams and stuff like that,” said Riley Godfredson, Lakeshore Cyclery.
Riley Godfredson has rode on RAGBRAI four times, but this year he’s excited that it’s back in his hometown.
