The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, commonly known as RAGBRAI®, is the nation’s largest and best-known bicycle ride.  Every year since 1973, bicyclists have started at the western side of the state and pedaled across Iowa to the Mississippi River over a seven-day period. It has become immensely popular amongst cyclist, attracting riders from all 50 states and many countries each year. Iowa doesn’t have seashores or mountains but one reason it continues to be so popular is because of the hospitality that Iowans show to their two-wheeled visitors each year throughout the rolling corn fields. Towns all along the route go out of their way to make riders feel welcome when RAGBRAI comes through. This year, Iowa Corn will be welcoming cyclist with homegrown, fresh Iowa sweet corn. There will be five stops along the 500 mile plus route offering riders sweet corn, the opportunity to talk with local farmers and tour the Iowa Corn trailer. The sweet corn stops are:
