Here’s what you need to know about Day 7 of RAGBRAI XLVIII, when we ride from DeWitt to Clinton!
It’s our last day of RAGBRAI XLVIII! Try to take your time and enjoy it. It’s not as hilly as our last days sometimes are:
Today’s ride is 31.6 miles with approximately 1,148 feet of climb. On our way from DeWitt to Clinton, we will visit Charlotte, Goose Lake, and Six Mile. Stop by the People for Bikes booth downtown in every overnight town for route cards with more accurate between-town mileages.
Let’s Roll to the River in Clinton – here’s how you’ll get there. Thanks to our official GIS Sponsor, CGA Consultants for our RAGBRAI XLVIII Overnight Town Maps!
To find out more about Clinton’s plans for us visit their page on our website: https://ragbrai.com/route-maps/dewitt/?section=ui-rb-towns-1
When you arrive on Main Avenue, there will be a street dance between Lyons Tap & Bicycle Station. There are restaurants near by and the road will be blocked for cyclists. Then after you dip your tires downtown, Riverview Drive will have a band featuring Brooke Byam, Random Tanner, Dave Layton of the Unidynes, and more. There will be food vendors and Jaycees beer tent. You will exit into our downtown which has shopping, restaurants, and more. Then on your way out of town, there are additional restaurants.
