RAGBRAI®, The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa®, is seven-day leisurely tour from the western border of Iowa to the Mississippi River enjoying the wonderful Iowa scenery and hospitality. RAGBRAI is the oldest, largest and longest multi-day bicycle ride in the United States. The Des Moines Register has coordinated this ride that attracts 10,000 cycling enthusiasts from every state in the nation and several foreign countries. RAGBRAI is a bicycle ride-not a race. It started in 1973 as a six-day ride across the state of Iowa by two Des Moines Register columnists who invited a few friends along. It is held the last full week in July and hosted by The Register's front-page cartoonist, Brian Duffy and a team of Register staffers. RAGBRAI is planned and coordinated by The Des Moines Register, and riders who participate in RAGBRAI understand that they do so at their own risk. The overnight towns for the 2007 Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, the 35th year of the famous cycling event, were announced today and organizers summed up the ride with one word: “Flat.” “It’s the flattest RAGBRAI ever,” said ride host Brian Duffy of this year’s 478-mile trek across the northern third of the state, scheduled for July 22-28. The people of Iowa truly make RAGBRAI the special event that it is by opening up their towns and communities to participants. We hope you can enjoy this Iowa hospitality and join us for a memorable trip across the state. The cost includes tags, baggage transportation, discounts, sag wagon services, emergency medical services, patch, camping, and daily route maps.
