With RAGBRAI back on the schedule this summer, eight Iowa communities are making plans to host thousands of bicycle riders from around the world as overnight stops on the statewide ride.

LeeAnna Boone, director of the Anamosa Chamber of Commerce, says they were named as a host city for the 2020 edition of the popular ride, which was canceled due to COVID-19.

“It gave us a whole other year to think about things, have a little more planning, but actually, everything that we had started last year fell right into place this year,” Boone says. “We just picked up where we left off and it all worked well.”

The Jones County town will be the sixth overnight stop on the eight-day ride that treks 454 miles from western Iowa to the Mississippi River. It will be Anamosa’s fourth time hosting RAGBRAI and there’ll be plenty of live music to celebrate the occasion.
