What Should I Know About RAGBRAI®?

Spring has sprung here in Muscatine! Just around the corner is summer, and this year that means welcoming more than 10,000 RAGBRAI® riders and their support teams to our community!

Pulling our town together to serve as the dip site for RAGBRAI on July 30 is no small undertaking. With more than 20 committees at work, plans for the event are in the works. We want to make sure you are able to participate and stay informed.

The RAGBRAI Muscatine Committee will host a town meeting for community members to learn more about what it means for Muscatine to serve as this year’s RAGBRAI ending town. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 3 at 6 p.m. at Pearl City Station, 100 Harbor Drive.

Topics of the meeting will include a general overview of RAGBRAI and how it will affect Muscatine, along with information on volunteering, housing and vending. There are many ways to get involved with RAGBRAI and coming to the meeting would be a good start. All are invited to come learn about this exciting opportunity for Muscatine!
