Charles City, Iowa – The Charles City RAGBRAI theme and logo were unveiled at a Facebook Live event on Wednesday.
Executive committee member Cory Mutch, who designed the logo, said after discussing several different themes and ideas, the committee decided to highlight the Wednesday overnight as the last stop before the riders will hit the more hilly portion of the 7-day ride.
Charles City was chosen as an overnight stop in February, and will be the home for approximately 15,000 riders along with support personnel and vendors on Wednesday, July 26th.
The route will take riders from Clear Lake , where they will spend the night on Tuesday, July 25th and will have stops in Thornton, Swaledale, Rockewell, Cartersville and Rockford before spending the night in Charles City.
The executive and sub-committees have been meeting regularly since the announcement in February to make decisions on where camping will be located, what entertainment will be provided, where meals and showers will located, along with other major aspects of the event.
More information about the overnight for RAGBRAI can be found on the Charles City RAGBRAI Facebook page. T-shirts will soon be available for purchase with the Charles City logo and will be for sale at the Charles City Chamber office.
