The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
The 2016 RAGRBRAI will begin on July 23. This ride has been going on since the early 1970s. The initials stand for Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. The "Register" comes from the Des Moines Resgister, an Iowa newspaper. There are about 10,000 riders on each day of the week-long event. Some groups of cyclists show up each year for this event. For large groups of riders, it appears school buses make the best support vehicles. They can carry lots of passengers and a roof deck can be added to transport necessities like bicycles and beer kegs.
