Have some fun.
RAGBRAI- Monday, July 22
Yes, thousands of bikers are headed our way and they'll be following much of the old White Pole Road on the second day of the Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa. More details to come as the oldest, largest and longest recreational bicycle touring event in the world heads our way.
And be sure to check out our Reflections Along the White Pole Road book. It's available for $25 and makes a great addition to your coffee table. It features a foreword written by Loren Kruse, former Editor-in-Chief of Successful Farming; photography by Timothy C. Florer of Rural Iowa Ruins and Against the Current; and short recollections from older residents as interviewed by area students.
Visit one of these locations to purchase your books. You'll save money by buying local.
