RAGBRAI Adopt-a-Rider Event

Wednesday • June 26 • 6:00pm
Winterset City Park, South Shelter

RAGBRAI will be in Winterset in just 6 weeks, and many riders are in need of a place to stay when they get here. There are currently over 100 RAGBRAI groups in search of overnight accommodations when they roll into town next month, and we need your help to host them!

Join the RAGBRAI committee on Wednesday, June 26, at 6:00pm. at the Winterset City Park South Shelter for a fun evening of adopting groups in need, picking one that fits best with what you’d like to offer. From couples to small groups, there is a team that will be the perfect fit for you! Hosts are only asked to provide what they can, and what they feel comfortable with, to the rider groups. Some teams are only seeking green lawn space, while others would prefer to have access to a shower and restroom. But it’s totally up to the host!

He meets Mutt (Shia La Beouf), a young man who wants Indy to help him find the legendary Crystal Skull of Akator, and the pair set out for Peru. However, deadly agent Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett) is searching for the powerful artifact, too, because the Soviets believe it can help them conquer the world. 2008, PG-13, 2hr 2min
