Hospitals Prepare for RAGBRAI
INDEPENDENCE, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - Hospitals along the RAGBRAI route are getting ready for the racers.
Around 10,000 riders and another 10,000 followers are expected to roll across the state during RAGBRAI.
The six-day ride comes with a few overnight stops where riders will be able to relax and sometimes get help.
Buchanan County leaders say some of those riders will need medical attention, so they're working with hospitals to make sure they're ready to treat injuries.
They say during the 2007 ride, one hospital saw 90 patients in one day; most for heart-related issues.
The 418-mile trek runs from July 20th through the 26th, when it will wrap up in Guttenberg.
