The Voy 61 Drive In Theatre, south of Maquoketa, will offer a free showing of “Shift: The RAGBRAI Documentary” on Tuesday, July 18. The entrance gate will open at 7:30 p.m. and the showing will begin at 9 p.m.
“Shift” tells the story of RAGBRAI through ground-breaking photography and intimate interviews with three riders and a pair of community leaders as they overcome grueling miles and personal hurdles to find peace, redemption and clarity while bicycling across Iowa.
Nearly 50 years ago, a pair of Des Moines Register writers and weekend bicyclists got a wild hair to pedal across the state and call it work. One condition, the paper’s brass said: You have to invite readers to join the ride.
