Jefferson’s RAGBRAI hosts party to reveal theme and logo

Jefferson community invited to a rockin’ good time

Gear up for a party. 

With less than 100 days left until the “rolling” of RAGBRAI, the Jefferson RAGBRAI Committee invites the Greene County public and bicyclist enthusiasts from miles around to their Theme and Logo Reveal Party. This rockin’ good time will be held April 23 at the Old Milwaukee Depot with doors opening at 5pm touting appetizers and refreshments and the reveal starting at 5:30pm.

Executive co-chair of the Jefferson RAGBRAI Committee, Toni Wetrich, guarantees an electric and boisterous event you won’t want to miss. 

“We are excited to reveal our theme and logo and hope that we can get the community involved in this exciting time to showcase our town.” she said. “We’re also excited to host this event at the Old Milwaukee Depot and if the weather is nice, we encourage everyone to ride your bikes to the event to kickoff this celebration.”

The celebration will mark the three-month countdown to when riders on the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Around Iowa (RAGBRAI) pedal to Jefferson July 23 for only the fourth time in its 46-year history. To help celebrate the occasion, Jefferson’s RAGBRAI Committee will reveal a promotional video containing a special message from the band Hairball, the headliner for the festivities in July. In addition to the food and refreshments, attendees can expect to learn more about RAGBRAI, volunteer opportunities, purchase official Jefferson RAGBRAI merchandise, as well as enjoy a good time with friends and neighbors.

“We would love to see many folks of all ages show up to celebrate Jefferson’s official RAGBRAI kickoff celebration,” said Toni Wetrich’s counterpart Matt Wetrich. “RAGBRAI is not just a big bike ride, it is a celebration of each town that it stops in, and we are extremely proud to get to celebrate Jefferson.” Wetrich also encourages people to “be there in person to be the first to see our snazzy logo and fun theme.”
