RAGBRAI will take off across the state in just a few days and once riders get to Fairfield — things will get a little hairy.

That’s where riders can be part of a world record attempt. Next Friday, participants will try to break the record for the most people simultaneously wearing fake mustaches.

The current record was set in Grand Rapids, Michigan with 1,532 participants.

Adults and children are encouraged to participate. Organizers are asking people to go to the courthouse at 5:30 p.m. to participate.
