are barely two months away from the biggest party on wheels... as ragbrai (rag?bry)... with thousands of bike riders... returns to central iowa. but not without controversy. some counties ? are considerng banning vendors ? along the side of the road. during the event, bike riders don't just take advantage of what's offered in the towns they pass through, they stop at beer and food vendors along the route. but this summer monona county? on the western border of iowa ? has put a ban on those vendors and some riders worry ? other counties could follow that same path. a ragbrai spokesperson says the ban is about safety... as this years route has a lot more curves along that part of the route. no word on if any other counties will officially follow suit.
