The Big Red Tent at RAGBRAI 2022

BRAG’s Big Red Tent set up in a backyard in West Union, Iowa on the last night of RAGBRAI camping.

The Bicycle Ride Across Georgia (BRAG) took the BRAG Bus, 10 cyclists from Georgia, and our iconic Big Red tent to Iowa at end of July for our annual pilgrimage to the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (or RAGBRAI).

RAGBRAI is an annual bike ride that takes tens of thousands cyclists across the state of Iowa, stopping at different towns along the way. Like BRAG, routes and overnight towns change each year.

We had a blast! Below are a few snapshots from our time in Iowa.
