RAGBRAI® logo unveiled, questions answered


Knoxville —

"This is a chance to show our pride," Feik said. "I really think we're going to be the gem of this year's route." 

The call for hundreds of volunteers before, during and after the event was made several times at the meeting. Even if you cannot volunteer, the committee encourages everyone in Knoxville to purchase a t-shirt, with the aforementioned logo, and wear it on July 24. 

Shirts should be printed soon. A cost was not given at the meeting. An announcement of when and where the shirts will be available should follow soon after. 

Concern was raised about where bikes will be parked and how those businesses and churches, not located on the designated route or shuttle route, will be noticed. Bike parking will be worked out in the weeks ahead. As for getting your stand or business noticed, advertising is available through the RAGBRAI® committee, and through the Journal-Express. 

Look for the information shared Wednesday on our website when it is received. We will continue to keep you updated on the RAGBRAI® event as it unfolds in the weeks to come.
