This year’s RAGBRAI event is paying off for local organizations. The ride stopped in Keokuk, Iowa this year, and the extra money raised during the event is being put back into the community.

Keokuk RAGBRAI organizers said they have around $50,000 extra raised by the event which brought thousands of cyclists to Keokuk, now they’re looking for ways that money can get the community to stay active.

Over 10,000 cyclists ended the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa in Keokuk this summer by dipping their wheels into the Mississippi. It’s the first stop in the city in almost three decades, and it’s paying off for local organizations.

“We had some money left over which is a good situation to have, and we decided to set up a grant fund and allow people in town of Keokuk to apply for those funds,” saidKeokuk RAGBRAI Co-Chair and Executive Director of Keokuk Area Convention and Tourism Bureau Kirk Brandenberger.

According to him, they’re looking to give grants ranging from $1,000-25,000 to projects or organizations in Keokuk.
