Iowa has many unique events that draw thousand to the state and allow Quad Citians to celebrate all that is special about our area. One of those events started as a lark, The Register Great Bike Ride Across Iowa - or RAGBRAI.

This year, the race that crosses the state, starting at the Missouri River, will end with riders dipping their tires in the Mississippi River here in Davenport.

And, it will happen on the same day as The Bix Road Race.

Mark your calendars for July 28th. It will be one of the biggest days on the calendar this year.
