DeWitt’s RAGBRAI overnight is seven months away, but extensive behind-the-scenes work has already begun.

The first — and perhaps most vital — task is gathering volunteers to provide both ideas and labor in the months leading up to the event, and on the day of the event.

The DeWitt Chamber & Development Co., along with the city of DeWitt and an executive planning board, is seeking able hands and minds to pitch in and help organize the overnight stop, which will happen unless RAGBRAI organizers cancel the ride due to COVID-19 public health concerns. If that happens, DeWitt will host an overnight in 2022 instead.

Organizers say it will take an “all hands on deck” approach to host the event, which could attract between 15,000 and 20,000 people to DeWitt in one 24-hour span.
