Upper Iowa University’s Team Peacock will celebrate its 12th year participating in the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI)—the oldest, largest and longest bicycle touring event in the world! Since 2005, the 30+ member UIU team has raised more than $1.4 million to support students and University projects. This year, Team Peacock will be making a 420-mile trek across the state of Iowa, July 24-30, for the 43rd annual RAGBRAI and we want YOU to join us! RAGBRAI towns include: Glenwood, Shenandoah, Creston, Leon, Centerville, Ottumwa, Washington, and Muscatine. More info may be found at ragbrai.com.
