Columbus Junction is thrilled to be a pass through town for RAGBRAI XLIV! It’s our first time hosting the event and we’re glad to get a chance to share our unique brand of Iowa hospitality, humor and cuisine. Riders will be coming through on the morning of Saturday, July 30th. After Columbus Junction they will continue through Fredonia and Letts in Louisa County, then stop at Ardon Creek Winery in Muscatine County before dipping their tires in the Mississippi in the City of Muscatine.
