RAGBRAI riders, support crews, event coordinators and sponsors to Anamosa which lies in the heart of Jones County. On behalf of the 5500+ residents I would like to welcome you to our incredible community and hope your stay with us is memorable.
We are excited to be a part of RAGBRAI 2021 and the overnight host for the 5th leg of your weeklong journey. The hundreds of volunteers are eager to assist your needs and show you the hospitality that has been extended to visitors since our origin as a settlement in 1838. Be sure to stop by the numerous food and beverage vendors who have chosen to showcase and provide you with their specialties.
Some points of interest for you to take in during your brief stay with us or on your next visit are the Wapsipinicon State Park, Grant Wood Art Gallery, National Motorcycle Museum, Anamosa State Penitentiary Museum, American Gothic Statue, and the numerous businesses in our Historic Downtown District.

We may be a small town, but we like to throw big events and the last night of RAGBRAI will be no exception. DeWitt, known as the “Crossroads to Opportunity,” is located at the intersection of four-lane Highways 30 and 61 and is a part of the historic Lincoln Highway. Trust us, this is one intersection at which you’ll want to stop.
You will feel right at home in this welcoming community and are invited to take in the beauty, recreation, culture, and community pride found in DeWitt. Experience everything from golf, mountain biking, running, disc golf, spending time at the dog park or taking a dip at the Aquatic Center. Wander through our exceptional shops and grab a bite at our many restaurants throughout the community. History buffs will discover museums, historical landmarks and a history that spans back to 1836. And, this doesn’t even include all we’re planning to celebrate the last night of RAGBRAI 2021! We hope you can handle all we have to offer!
