The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

2019 RAGBRAI

Complete RAGBRAI Route with Roads and Towns will Start to be Released Next Sunday, March 17

It has been a long, rough winter for looking at the Iowa roadways and being able to determine a safe and enjoyable route for RAGBRAI this summer.  There is also plenty of road construction planned in our state that has altered our original proposed roads that we plan to travel between our announced overnight towns.

So that said….

I was a first timer last year. Some takeaways:
Why in the world did I wait SO long to do this? (Iowa native, age 69, now living in Florida).
So glad I followed the training schedule on the website. Now, if only I could find a hill down here.
I hate wind.
Having trained, prepared my bike and joined a great group (Henry County High Wheelers) I met the challenge. But that was not the best part – it was the people you meet and ride with all week long.
Back to training for 2019!
