Due to COVID-19, the 47th edition of the Iowa RAGBRAI ride has been postponed until 2021. It is another sad outcome of the awful situation we are in with the pandemic. RAGBRAI is keeping the same route for 2021 so at least the hosting communities who have been planning for the event have not wasted their efforts.

Too bad, RAGBRAI has been a wonderful and important community and newspaper event for everyone involved, readers, fans and relatives, of those riders and hosts.

I was planning on going and that’s one reason why I bought my Allant+. I was also going to get a spare battery.

RAGBRAI stands for the Register’s (Des Moines Register) Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa. It’s been going on since the ‘70s and thousands of people from all over the world have ridden it. Its one big old party on wheels across the state. All the small communities along the route prep for all the riders with food, drink, music, and fun. Too bad it was cancelled this year.

Interesting history of the event... the first year it was called The Great Six-Day Bicycle Ride. ;)

UPDATE..a recent news flash stated that RAGBRAI organizers are putting some kind of 3 day event around Iowa Falls, Iowa but I haven’t yet heard if it is for sure or any event details. All I’ve heard is it’s sometime in October.

I love the idea of an “Ebike Party Cluster“ across Iowa!

What a great and imaginative logo. Someone has some real talent, right down to the “leaves” starting to fall off the tree. That will be a hell of a good looking bike jersey.
