The last time RAGBRAI passed through the town of Brandon was in 1985 as the annual, week-long bicycle ride moved from its overnight stop in Waterloo to the next overnight in Monticello.

And for a few short weeks earlier this year, Brandon again found itself back on the map for the Register’s Annual Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI).

After spending the night in Waterloo, riders taking part in 2021 RAGBRAI were meant to pass through the towns of Raymar, Gilbertville, Brandon, and Urbana on the morning of July 29.

But those four towns have now been replaced by Jesup, Shady Grove, Rowley, and Walker in an attempt to avoid planned construction on the Highway 150 curve just outside of Urbana.
