Reply To: IR Could Follow RAGBRAI and Ride Back to Start Town

This would be met with resistance by the towns. Businesses that can’t profit from RAGBRAI like car dealers, farm equipment shops, furniture stores, dress shops, etc, will just be quiet, give an extra paid day off to their workers, and close a day. Funeral homes just avoid having funerals that day. That is very expensive and they won’t want to do it twice. One of the towns we visited last year had some businesses that suffered major losses and it probably adds up to more than the town as a whole gains.
