RAGBRAI

RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa) is an annual seven-day bicycle ride across the state of Iowa. RAGBRAI is the longest, largest and oldest touring bicycle ride in the world.

The ride is planned and coordinated by the Des Moines Register newspaper, and attracts thousands of riders from all 50 states and many countries around the world. The people of Iowa truly make RAGBRAI the special event that it is by opening up their towns and communities to participants and making the event a rolling celebration of Iowa.

The RAGBRAI route averages 472 miles and is not necessarily flat. It begins somewhere along Iowa's western border on the Missouri River and ends along the eastern border on the Mississippi River, and changes each each year. The average distance of each day's ride is about 68 miles.

RAGBRAI is limited to 8,500 week-long riders and 1,500 day riders. If rider sign-ups exceed the limit, participants are chosen via a random lottery draw.
