Peek Behind the Scenes Into RAGBRAI

You’ve seen the hoards of bikers. You’ve ridden the hundreds of miles. You’ve dipped your wheels in the Mississippi. Now, here’s your chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at one of the state’s most successful and well-known events.

Heading into its 45th year, the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) is the oldest, largest and longest recreational bicycle touring event in the world. Taking place right here in our own backyard, the annual event attracts thousands of local, national and international riders and media to the state of Iowa.

 So, how does it all work?

Join IABC on Thursday, February 23, at 11:30 AM at Iowa Finance Authority as RAGBRAI’s Andrea Parrott takes us behind the scenes into the planning, preparation and communications involved in running this successful event.

Lunch will be provided, and there will be an opportunity to network with communications colleagues and friends following the event.
