It’s time to get rolling! Day 2 of RAGBRAI Virtually the Best Bicycle Ride presented by TIDE. Today is PeopleForBikes Day! Let’s go!
We can’t wait to share Fort Dodge with you in 2021 but until then we’ve pulled together some fun facts and trivia about the eastern Iowa town that’s home to a University, nationally known authors, and a big, beautiful lake.LEARN MORE
RAGBRAI TOWN TRIVIA presented by Iowa Destination Marketing Alliance
Guess the 2021 meeting towns! Follow our social media for daily clues to the location of our seven 2021 meeting towns. Answers will be revealed the following day on social. Your only hint: the towns won’t be released in the order we will visit them.
Monday’s mileage and elevation are:
FEET OF CLIMB: 1,210
Don’t forget to log on to Ride Spot and share your route and story to be entered into today’s daily prize drawing. Winner’s will be announced the week of July 27th.
We couldn’t forget the food. Each day we will share a recipe from a friend of RAGBRAI. Today we have two for you:
First up, a S’mores Shake from Blue Bunny. Maybe the only dessert tastier than a s’more straight from the campfire.
Next, Tender Tom’s Turkey Lemonade Shake-Up! Pairs great with a Turkey Leg.
Need inspiration on your daily rides? We’ve created a custom playlist for each day to keep you moving! For today’s playlist, we asked around and these are some of RAGBRAI Riders’ favorite tunes to listen to while cycling! Rock on!! Click this text to go to the playlist!
