Traffic might look a little bit different tomorrow as members from the RAGBRAI organization arrive in Ames for the RAGBRAI inspection route.

The group of approximately 50 riders will cycle into town, likely in the late afternoon or early evening, following the official route from Carroll, riding through Jack Trice Stadium, and cross the bridge over University Blvd. The ride will not impact other parts of Ames.

Wednesday morning, riders will travel via Mortensen to South Dakota, then head south.
