RAGBRAI is an annual seven-day bicycle ride across the state. Heading into its 42nd year, RAGBRAI is the oldest, largest and longest bicycle touring event in the world... and it is coming through Sumner on the 25th of July!

The day will start early, as riders will be coming through from their overnight stay in Waverly.  Riders are expected to start showing up in town as early as 5:00am!

The American Legion, located on Main Street, and the local Fire Department will both be opening their doors for inside seating.  A beverage garden will be located just on the east end of the business district... one stop shopping for beer, wine and sodas. 

There will also be several different food vendors here during the day... complete with grilled hotdogs and hamburgers at the American Legion!

Sumner is being featured this year as Day #6 official RAGBRAI Souvenir selling headquarters.  PLUS... the Des Moines Register will also be here to report the day's activities.

If you're participating in RAGBRAI... you'll be treated to music, food and local entertainment while you're here.  Be sure to check out Sumner's website for all the sites you might want to see while you're here.
