We now know how RAGBRAI will weave its way through Des Moines.

When the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa makes its way through the Capital city on July 23rd, bike riders will go through West Des Moines, past historic Valley Junction and to the official campground in Water Works Park.

On July 24th, bikers will leave Des Moines on a route that goes through downtown and the East Village, past the Capitol, and finally, along the Iowa State Fairground`s grand concourse, before exiting the city and heading to Knoxville.

This is RAGBRAI’s first visit to Des Moines in 16 years.
