July 21-27th marks the 41st RAGBRAI. It is the 2nd shortest and 15 flattest route in history


RAGBRAI takes a southern central route this year. Compared to the blistering heat of 2012, this route looks much more tame from the "Route Gods". Of the seven days on the road, five hover around the 50 mile per day. the longest day is 83 miles, and the shortest days are from Perry to Des Moines and Des Moines to Knoxville at 49.9 miles each.

We at have the perfect setup to help showcase the overnight and pass-through towns. As new information gets posted to BIKEIOWA, towns and trails are tagged accordingly allowing YOU, that crazy bike rider, to view each town's portal to see what they are up to. We'll do our best to list each towns links, and social media hotspots.

To have the best experience in each town during RAGBRAI, visit each City Portal, the offical town website and become a follower on facebook and twitter.
