RAGBRAI, one of Iowa’s marquee events, began Sunday. And it began with a not-so welcome surprise.
According to Iowa State Trooper Keith Duenow, some nails were placed on the route off Highway 37 and Highway 183.
“Some nice citizen was kind enough to place nails out on the route this morning,” Trooper Duenow posted Sunday on Twitter. “We are working on getting these off of HWY 37 and 183.”
Monday’s route is 71.7 miles and goes from Denison to Jefferson.

RAGBRAI is a 7-day annual bike ride across Iowa that goes from the Missouri River to the Mississippi River.
