RAGBRAI cyclists filled the streets of Ackley during the 2015 ride. Though fewer registered riders are being accepted this summer, the economic impact of the ride is still important to small communities like Ackley.

The search continues for a volunteer who would serve as the community coordinator for RAGBRAI® riders visiting Ackley this July. Riders will be passing through town on July 28, following an overnight stay in Iowa Falls.

RAGBRAI registration closes tomorrow, April 1, with a maximum number of riders capped at 10,000. That number does not take into account the number of support people and those who show up to ride without registering.
