Spencer will host the first overnight stop of RAGBRAI XLV on July 23, 2017.
In case you haven’t heard, RAGBRAI, The Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa, is making an overnight stop in Spencer for the first time in 10 years. For one night, July 23, the people of Spencer will share our community, our homes and ourselves with riders from all over the United States and beyond. Spencer has a reputation of being one of the best RAGBRAI stops and we sure aren't going to disappoint!
Dust off those boots and pull out your bandana, Spencer is here to help you “Kick Your Wheels Up!” and enjoy everything our community has to offer. Join us for plenty of boot-stomping fun, food and entertainment. Behind the scenes, there is a host of committee members and volunteers already planning to make this a RAGBRAI stop you won’t soon forget!
