DENISON — RAGBRAI and its hordes of cyclists will travel across western Iowa today, the second day of the annual ride across Iowa.

Today includes stops in Aspinwall, Manning, Templeton, Dedham, Coon Rapids, and Scranton, before ending in Jefferson. The total mileage is 71.7 miles with 2,537 feet of climb, making it more challenging on paper then Sunday’s ride.

The route dips south but continues its eastern march across the state on what is predicted to be a mostly cloudy day with temperature peaking at 83 degrees and a possible evening shower or thunderstorm.

The ride began on Sunday in Onawa and ends on Saturday in Davenport.
