Charles City was once famous for the manufacture of heavy duty farm equipment. Today, remnants of its equipment are only park sculptures.

The RAGBRAI ride from Clear Lake, Iowa to Charles City was 51.8 miles for our bicyclists. Janne and Jerry drove ahead to secure parking and hookups for the rv and to find a place to wash clothes. Once the clothes were in the washing machines, Jerry took off to see the Floyd County Museum.
