Join 'Team Drake' on RAGBRAI College Spirit Day

Models sport biking jerseys representing Drake University, the University of Northern Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Iowa.

Bulldogs planning to take on The Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) in July should pack panniers full of Drake apparel to wear along the route this year.

RAGBRAI kicks off the first annual College Spirit Day on Friday, July 29, during the Grinnell to Coralville ride, and Drake University is proudly taking part. Drake has teamed up with RAGBRAI and other Iowa institutions for a celebration of school spirit.

Whether you're riding or road support, show your Bulldog pride by donning Drake blue July 29 and stopping by our tent in Coralville for DU swag. Riders can gear up in advance by ordering a special edition Drake cycling jersey and other Drake RAGBRAI merchandise at shop.ragbrai.org. Or, purchase items in person at the Coralville stop, where you can cheer on Spike as our mascot competes against the University of Iowa's Herkey, Iowa State's Cy and University of Northern Iowa's TC in the “RAGBRAI Mascot Challenge.”

Connect with other Drake fans who are planning to ride by RSVPing to the virtual Team Drake: RAGBRAI 2011 College Spirit Day event on facebook.
