The Indianola RAGBRAI committee rolled out its theme and logo Tuesday with an online release on Facebook. The theme is Roll into Nola, a take on Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday celebrations, said Gina Piper, one of four executive committee members with the group.
“We wanted to capture the fact that this is the shortest ride of the week, ending in one of the biggest parties,” said Piper. “And what party is bigger than Mardi Gras?”
Piper said Indianola will offer riders its own version of Mardi Gras on Tuesday, July 23, when they go just 39.9 miles from Winterset to Indianola. It’s also one of the flattest days of the week-long ride, she noted.
See the logo and theme at IndianolaRagbrai.com. Grant Darrah of Gradient9 Studios in Indianola developed the logo.
More information on the route through Indianola, campgrounds and entertainment will be released soon.
