The Bussey community welcomed RAGBRAI riders to town on Thursday. Some riders even left Knoxville at the crack of dawn and made the 36-mile ride through Pella and to Bussey by 8am. While there, they found plenty of activities. Food vendors filled the route while live music and music from DJ Jam Productions filled the air. Riders told KNIA/KRLS News that the hill heading into Bussey was the toughest on the route up to that point.
