New Hampton, Iowa – RAGBRAI is fast approaching and the New Hampton committee is still trying to raise money to help with the event.
A bicycle exchange looks to help with funding the state wide bike ride on July 6th at the Farmer’s Market. Erin McGee, who is a RAGBRAI Committee Member, says what this program is.
There is no requirement on the condition of the bikes that will be exchanged. You do not have to trade a whole, functioning bike. The bikes received in return will not be in brand new condition, but they will need some work.
This idea is a bit unique, so McGee says how it came to be.
It will cost $10 to trade for a bike and all of the proceeds will go towards the RAGBRAI Committee.
