Officials for RAGBRAI released the highly coveted information about when this ride will take place.


The 48th RAGBRAI will take place from July 25th to the 31st this summer. Officials for the 426-mile-ling ride are working with the local towns to make sure that everyone can safely enjoy RAGBRAI this year. There is currently a COVID-19 mitigation strategy in the works for everyone involved in the event.

Along with the official date for the kickoff, there are other useful resources.  You can check out the official bike route and schedule here on the RAGBRAI website. These bikers will be passing through a few different towns in Iowa. Is yours one of them?
