Keokuk Ragbrai

RAGBRAI will get underway in about 100 days. Planning is well underway in Keokuk to be the final stop for the seven-day bicycle ride across Iowa in late July.

One of the things that keeps the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) going is that it attracts people from inside the state and outside -- sometimes way outside.

RAGBRAI brings people to Iowa from across the country.  The bicyclists and their supporters not only ride across the state, they spend money across the state.
