Find yourself pedaling along the Hawkeye State's gorgeous countryside with fellow cycling enthusiasts during this anticipated annual event.
Over four decades have passed since two journalists biked from Sioux City to Davenport – while simultaneously developing a new Iowa tradition.
That ride – known then as the Great Six-Day Bicycle Ride event – ignited the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa™, or RAGBRAI®.
Many attractions await in Hawkeye towns along the RAGBRAI® route each year. Take advantage of stunning Iowa state parks, bottomless history museums, and hiking trails aplenty for a little break from the pedal.
For seven days, join your fellow cyclists for this festival on wheels, and make good on stopping at a few Best Western hotels in Iowa along the way.
