The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa takes a northern route this summer across the top of the state. The 479 mile ride starts in LeMars and finishes a week later on the Mississippi River in Guttenberg. Host towns for the overnight stops will be LeMars, Sheldon, Estherville, Algona, Northwood, Cresco and West Union. Although the ride has passed through LeMars and Northwood, a small town four miles from the Minnesota border, the ride has never overnighted in the two towns before. Although the complete route will not be announced until February 20, RAGBRAI host Brian Duffy offers this peek at the ride's difficulty: "Northern routes are generally flatter terrain," he said. At least, he said with a smile, until the ride hits the river valleys in the northeast part of the state. To register, go to www.ragbrai.org. Deadline is April 1.
