Bulldogs on bicycles

A giant inflatable Spike welcomed RAGBRAI riders after a long, hot day on the road.

The Drake University Bulldogs invaded Hawkeye territory last month with a presence at the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) stop in Coralville.

A giant inflatable Spike welcomed College Spirit Day riders after a long, hot day, and alumni and friends stopped by the Drake tent for freebies and more information about the University. Check out our photo gallery of the day’s events.

In the evening, attendees were able to cheer Spike on as he competed in a RAGBRAI mascot challenge against The University of Iowa’s Herky the Hawk, Iowa State’s Cy, T.C. from the University of Northern Iowa and Upper Iowa University’s Pete the Peacock.

Drake University cycling jerseys, tech shirts and hats are currently available in the RAGBRAI shop.
