RAGBRAI, The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, is an annual seven-day bicycle ride across the state. Heading into its 39th year, RAGBRAI is the oldest, largest and longest bicycle touring event in the world. Des Moines Register Media has been the title sponsor of RAGBRAI since 1973.

If you are a bicycle enthuist you have probably at least heard of RAGBRAI!  Since it was passing nearby we decided to head over to Durant, Iowa this morning as these amazing bicyclers were headed onto Davenport, Iowa on the last leg of their journey!  It started last Sunday! 

Here are some pictures I took this morning, and I might add that they were a friendly bunch even though they had some very warm weather to travel in this week!

Yes, these guys would be the cheeseheads!

This guy has a lei ? sp?  around his neck and a bouquet on his helmet!

They keep coming over the top of the hill!

none too young for the experience!

Lots of crazy get ups!

Lots of Tandems

They just keep coming!  This highway will look like this till late afternoon!

And Yes that would be Mark talking to the lady to see if she needed some help!
