ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Editor:

Last Friday was the culmination of months of planning and work as RAGBRAI came through Wellman for the first time. I had never experienced RAGBRAI before, and it was unbelievable to see the mass of bikers in downtown Wellman.

There was so much time and effort put in by the volunteers, local vendors, and city staff to give the riders a great experience in town. For the city staff and the volunteers who helped clean up afterwards… An amazing job! Within a couple hours of shutdown, the town looked like it did a few days before.

There is no way that I can thank all of those enough who helped with this monumental effort. My hope is that you had a great time and that you will be left with the knowledge that the feedback from the riders was very positive and they left with a great impression of Wellman! You all should be very proud of yourselves and of your community!

Ryan Miller

Mayor of Wellman
