I want the hills… That was the best part of 2017! But i really want to ride the Great River Road.

Waukon as a pass-through town? Look out, Empty Nest Winery! Here come The Woo’s!

Chad, you’re welcome to my share of the steep hills! ;-)

Screwie Louie’s Bar in Newell, IA is claiming on Facebook that their hometown is on this year’s route and ready to serve you a drink. Newell and neighboring Fonda were on the route in 2015 and were both great hosts. So, that would be Day 2: Ida Grove to Pocahontas.

Full route posted this morning in the Des Moines Register. Forum won’t allow web links so remove the dot words and replace with periods.

The full route is map is listed on this Ragbrai home page. On day three and day four we touch a town between West Bend and Emmetsburg and then Emmetsburg to Whittemore on the way to Mason City. The small town is Rodman and county road B55 is on the south side of town. I will be riding through there this summer on my bike trip from Emmetsburg to St. Anthony, IA via gravel, The Three Rivers Trail (that starts in Rolfe and is a pass-through town day three) and paved roads.

The article listed Whittemore as a new pass-thru town but the route has actually gone through the town 7 times (1977, 1990, 1999, 2005, 2010, 2017).
