Gearing Up for RAGBRAI

Bicyclists from around the world have begun training for RAGBRAI XXXIX, July 24-30—the Des Moines Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa.

This year, organizers are collaborating with the UI Alumni Association and staff at Drake, Iowa State, and the University of Northern Iowa, to implement College Spirit Day. Set for Friday, July 29, when the route runs from Grinnell to Coralville, all riders, alumni, and fans are encouraged to celebrate and show their school pride. To help the effort, RAGBRAI has launched a new collegiate merchandise collection that includes UI, Drake, ISU, and UNI caps and jerseys.  Upon arrival in Coralville, RAGBRAI riders and visitors will enjoy “Coralville U,” a tailgate-themed arrival celebration and a night filled with entertainment and ample opportunities to show their school colors.
