Storm Lake RAGBRAI Committee Member Acknowledges School District ; When to Expect Bike Riders to Enter Town Sunday

Storm Lake RAGBRAI Executive Committee member Carl Turner stopped by the Storm Lake School Board meeting on Wednesday to thank the district for their involvement in local festivities for the bike ride’s first overnight stop…

Turner said there are roughly 30-thousand week-long RAGBRAI registrants…

Support personnel are expected to arrive in town starting at 8am Sunday. The first wave of bikers is expected to arrive around 10am that day, and the majority of bikers should get into town between 1 and 2pm. Due to the incoming heat wave, bikers will be urged to leave Storm Lake as fast as possible Monday morning.

Turner said the only way for an event of RAGBRAI’s magnitude to happen in Storm Lake is with the help of organizations like the school district. Turner served as the Storm Lake superintendent from 2011 to 2018.

Turner again stressed the need for volunteers. Get more information or sign up at
