MASON CITY, Iowa – RAGBRAI is rolling into North Iowa very soon and that has local hosts getting pumped up.
John and Donna McKay’s neighborhood in Mason City is usually quiet on a normal day, but come Wednesday, their driveway will be full of bikes.
These folks will be housing 30 to 50 people right in their backyard. They tell us even their neighbors want to get in on the fun, so they’re opening their backyards to the fellow cyclists.
“I think it’s kind of neat they are all pulling together. Just word got around that we we’re going to host some people,” said John.
They will be housing the “Team Cuisine” group. They say the team stopping out at their house will be bringing their own chefs to cater for the host family and bikers.
