Six weeks remain until RAGBRAI 2021 begins, and organizers in Sac City, the ride’s first overnight town this year, are continuing their preparations for the crowds of riders, support teams and vendors. According to Lance Wilhelm, the community’s RAGBRAI committee chairman, as many as 20,000 people may be coming to town on Sunday, July 25. He says all these people will need somewhere to sleep, so they are searching for residents willing to open their homes and yards to the riders.

Wilhelm adds those 20,000 people will all need to eat at least one meal while in Sac City. Organizers have been working with local restaurants, non-profit groups and vendors to ensure enough food will be available. He estimates approximately 400 volunteers will be needed to help during the days leading up to RAGBRAI and immediately afterwards. Currently about 250 people have signed up.
