Ionia, “The Little Town with the BIG WELCOME,” will have a chance to live up to that motto this summer when RAGBRAI comes through town.
After RAGBRAI riders stay in Charles City the night of July 28th, Ionia will be the first pass-through town the next day as bicyclists make their way to West Union for the overnight stop on July 29th.
Ionia Mayor Randy Taylor says they hope for an experience similar to RAGBRAI coming through in 2017.
Taylor says they also look forward to again putting their best foot forward as a pass-through town.
Taylor adds there will be an informational meeting this Wednesday at 6 p.m. in Ionia City Hall with all residents welcome. You can find more information on the Ionia RAGBRAI 2022 Facebook page.
