For those of you who don't know about RAGBRAI, it stands for the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. The Register is the paper for Des Moines, and this event is the largest and oldest ride of its kind in the world. Each year they set a different route across the whole state starting on the western edge of Iowa and ending at the Mississippi River on the eastern border. 2014 is the 42nd RAGBRAI, and thousands of riders started from Rock Valley, Iowa to make the 7 day journey, stopping in small towns along the way and camping out each night. It is a spectacular event filled with friendly folks, challenging bike routes, and lots of Midwestern food and hospitable Iowans.
