BURLINGTON, Iowa — Organizers with RAGBRAI, the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, have announced its theme for 2019, “Rally to the Alley.”
Snake Alley is a famous landmark, designated by Ripley’s Believe it or Not as “Unbelievably Crooked” and the No. 1 Odd Spot in Ripley’s Guide to the Curious Corners of America. The alley runs on North 6th Street between Columbia and Washington Streets. It’s made up of limestone and blueclay bricks.
More than 20,000 riders will ride into Burlington on Friday, July 26 and end their week-long ride in Keokuk on Saturday.
