RAGBRAI Mason City unveils Logo

(ABC 6 News) – RAGBRAI Mason City has unveiled the logo that will be used on its overnight stop during RAGBRAI XLIX.

Mason City’s town theme for the 49th annual RAGBRAI is ‘Ride of the Century.’

For the first time since 1985, RAGBRAI is routing a Century Day in honor of the late co-founder John Karras who created these 100 mile days.

The logo, designed by local artist Julie Kim, features muted earth tones inspired by Mason City’s regional Prairie School design. Visual elements include The Historic Park Inn, the downtown plaza’s custom-designed light posts, wavy lines representing the Winnebago River, and straight lines showing progress and movement.

The banners represent the finish line and welcome riders to Mason City – where the ‘fun begins.’ Page 2 Kim previously designed the Mason City Guidebook, map, advertisements, and other printed media when RAGBRAI last made an overnight stop in 2014.

On Wednesday, July 27th, thousands of cyclists will make the 105-mile journey from Emmetsburg to Mason City. Everyone who completes 100 miles will receive a commemorative patch. RAGBRAI will have extended SAG service on this day.

This will be the third time that RAGBRAI has made an overnight stop in Mason City.
