The City of Knoxville is looking more ready for RAGBRAI after some new decorations were put up Friday. City employees secured bikes onto stoplights around the downtown square to help get the community into the cycling mood. Chamber of Commerce Director Larissa Van Donselaar says that the idea came from decoration committee member Kristi Van Hauen, who was inspired by ideas from her vacation.
