RAGBRAI is one of the latest events to be postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The event, which takes cyclists across Iowa, is now set for July 25 to July 31, 2021. It had been planned for July 19 to July 25.

The towns along the route will remain the same in the 2021 event. The full route, with meeting and pass-through towns, will be announced at a later date.

“While we wish we were biking across Iowa this July, our resolve is to make 2021 even better and we look forward to lifting these communities up when it is safe,” organizers said in a statement on the RAGBRAI website.

Riders who registered and paid for the 2020 ride can transfer their registration to the 2021 ride, get a full refund or donate their registration fee to the Iowa Bicycle Coalition.

Riders who want a full refund are required to fill out a request form by June 1.

Organizers also are planning a weekend fall ride, with more information to be released later this spring.
