Here’s what you need to know about Day 6 of RAGBRAI XLVIII, when we ride from Anamosa to DeWitt!

First things first: the route. A beautiful ride through Grant Wood country:

Today’s ride is 64.3 miles with approximately 1,484 feet of climb. On our way from Anamosa to DeWitt, we will visit Hale, Oxford Junction, Lost Nation, and Calamus (first visit). Stop by the People for Bikes booth downtown in every overnight town for route cards with more accurate between-town mileages.

Friday on RAGBRAI XLVIII is College Jersey Day!

College Jersey Day
Show your college spirit! Put your allegiance on display and celebrate your college loyalty. (Go Hawks! – Andrea)
