While RAGBRAI participants were greeted by thousands in Coralville last year, local residents who are interested will have to travel to Cedar Rapids this year to see any local trace of the 40th-annual bicycle tour.

RAGBRAI — the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa — is a seven-day bicycle ride across the state of Iowa, and it's the oldest and longest running bicycle touring event in the world, according to its website.

The event has historically taken place the last full week of July, and this year's event started in Sioux Center on Sunday. It will culminate in Clinton on Saturday.

Bicyclists will make a stop in Cedar Rapids on Thursday.

According to RAGBRAI's website, the total mileage for the seven-day tour is roughly 468 miles, and the daily mileage comes out to around 67 miles.
