The 2013 Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, RAGBRAI, is slated to begin in Council Bluffs, and the organizing committee has met and decided on a local theme- “Sizzle In Your Seat- a Wild Ride for Your Hide”. As you might expect, the Bluffs theme this year will feature a pig riding a bicycle.

Josee Beier, Director of Convention and Sports Sales for the Council Bluffs Convention and Visitors Bureau says they “Wanted something fun and unique to celebrate 2013.” The local committee approved a logo concept along with the theme, and a preliminary T-shirt design to be unveiled soon. Plans are also being developed for a Council Bluffs RAGBRAI website and Facebook page, which will feature the theme, show the T-shirt design, and provide other pertinent information for residents and RAGBRAI enthusiasts.
Council Bluffs will welcome RAGBRAI riders, support personnel, fans and friends, July 20 for one large get-together before the ride across Iowa begins the next morning, July 21.
