WEATHER: This will probably be the hottest day of the week, and it’s also the longest. The high will be near 90 with a heat index near 100. Skies are expected to remain clear. VIDEO: How riders beat the heat.

Tuesday is RAGBRAI Jersey Day.

TONIGHT’S MAIN STAGE ENTERTAINMENT: Black Diet, Less Nessman, the Oddfathers, the Hepperly Band (4 p.m.-midnight) MORE: Entertainment list for the week

ALL ABOUT FOREST CITY:  Here is the town’s RAGBRAI website

THE SIGHTS

Here’s a brief selection of the things you’ll encounter Tuesday:

GET PAMPERED: Loosen those tense muscles and get a cyclist-specific massage at Bancroft’s Spa Dee Dah, Too, an upscale spa. The staff will provide a peaceful atmosphere and skin care products.

GET BUFFALO: You may recognize the word “tatanka” from the movie “Dances with Wolves,” so the town of Titonka will have a buffalo theme for RAGBRAI. Enjoy some of Titonka’s signature “buffalo” sauce in the EMS building or take a picture with life-sized cutouts of buffaloes.

RV THERE YET? Forest City is the home of Winnebago and the world’s largest RV production plant. Riders can take tours starting at 1 p.m. They will also be greeted on their way into town by Forest City Elementary students singing the “RV There Yet?” theme song.
