DENISON, Iowa, July 22, 2018 — Photographer Don Poggensee was along the way Sunday as the 46th RAGBRAI — that’s the Des Moines Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa — began with a hilly ride from Onawa to Denison. Today, Monday, July 23, the riders roll on to Jefferson for their next overnight stay. You can get a feel for the event in these photos.
Oh, those hills west of Denison — but the views are spectacular!
Up and down and up some more!
Prayer helps on some of these western Iowa hills.
Big view from up high.
Whole lot of bicycles!
It was a different kind of day in Denison.
Ready for a song?
Bicycles and flamingoes.
Ride’s over — let’s eat!
