Looking forward to putting 2020 in the rearview mirror, Upper Iowa University’s Team Peacock is on the road again with RAGBRAI XLVIII Sunday, July 25 – Saturday, July 31. The goal of the 2021 fundraising campaign has been exceeded with over $18,750 in donations. As in past years, Team Peacock members set individual goals in raising funds for a select UIU project or program that each individual is passionate about.
Team Peacock is joining approximately 10,000 other riders in making the 455-mile trek across Iowa in 2021. Team Peacock is scheduled to depart in support vehicles from Victory Gate at Fayette Campus on Saturday, July 24. The RAGBRAI journey begins in Le Mars on Sunday, July 25. Overnight stops will take place in Sac City, Fort Dodge, Iowa Falls, Waterloo, Anamosa and DeWitt. As is tradition, the bicycle tires will be dipped in the Mississippi River this year in Clinton on July 31.
