RAGBRAI, The Des Moines Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, is an annual seven-day bicycle ride across the state. Heading into its 47th year, RAGBRAI is the oldest, largest and longest recreational bicycle touring event in the world.

In the beginning, no one imagined that RAGBRAI would become the Iowa tradition it is now. The Des Moines Register thanks all the riders who have joined over the years. They especially wish to thank the thousands and thousands of volunteers in the towns visited along the way for their tireless work to show RAGBRAI riders the hospitality that has made this ride world famous.
