It will be quite a summer. The Des Moines Register has announced its RAGBRAI ride will pass through Manning July 23. I’m not a bicyclist and I’ve seen footage of the event on television, but to witness the riders first-hand during their last pass through Manning in 2011, it was a spectacular feast of color and characters. The sheer number of riders (10,000 expected) is hard to believe. The whole thing is fantastic.
