RAGBRAI week is nearly upon us - when 20,000 people from across the world participate. Many of you are planning activities to support your club as riders peddle through your community, or a community near you.
We have asked the clubs along the route to offer Rotary stickers to Cyclists who often collect stickers on their helmets on RAGBRAI.  Look for Rotary booths and stickers if you will be in any of these towns during the ride: Jefferson, Boone, Ames, Nevada, Newton, Wellman, Kalona, Iowa City, West Liberty and Davenport!
