RAGBRAI For Dubuque No Word

Officials in Dubuque are still waiting to hear from organizers of the Des Moines Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, or RAGBRAI. Keith Rahe, President and CEO of Travel Dubuque, says the city has sent a letter of request along with an application to be the last stop for riders in the 2020 ride. Things are still not settled after the four staff members who worked full-time running RAGBRAI recently left to start their own bike ride next summer. Rahe says a visit by RAGBRAI riders is a big deal for Dubuque economic wise. The week long event in July draws thousands of cyclists from around the country and had been founded by Register employees in the 1970s. Dubuque last hosted RAGBRAI in 2010.
