On July 24, Team Grinnell was among the mass of 15,000 riders dipping their tires in the Missouri River water to kick off RAGBRAI, the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. The annual seven-day ride across the state touts itself as “the oldest, largest and longest bicycle touring event in the world.” The team enjoyed an extra treat on Thursday as RAGBRAI rolled into town—an overnight stay at the College.
