RAGBRAI® safety team comes to Knoxville

(Continued)

Knoxville —

Juskiewicz said he is also encouraged by the excitement Knoxville has shown for being an overnight host city. 

"Every time we're in town, you can just feel it," Juskiewicz said. He has spent 10 years with RAGBRAI® and participated as a rider one additional year. What he has learned is that Knoxville should be thankful for the time and effort its local committee has, and will continue, to put into RAGBRAI®.

"I don't think poeple understand the time and effort put in by this local committee," Juskiewicz said. He estimates that, by the time the event is over, they will have spent over 500 hours volunteering, all in an effort to showcase the town.
