Folks in Davenport are gearing up for it to be a busy summer.
Some in the city have fingers crossed that this weekend they'll learn RAGBRAI will end there once again.
Wednesday night, Community members and city leaders will learn what having the end of the great ride will mean for the QCA.
The end point for the 2014 RAGBRAI will be announced on Saturday in Des Moines.
At the Davenport city council meeting, there will be a presentation about what needs to happen if the city is chosen.
Having hosted the end point just three years ago, city officials tell us we're ready.
"Big events on Davenport's riverfront are really not that extraordinary. They're rather ordinary. We do them a lot and often and all summer long. So we are prepared to host RAGBRAI very easily," says Joe Taylor, President of the Quad Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau
When RAGBRAI ended in Davenport on the same day as the Bix 7 race three years ago, it brought more than 50,000 people into the city.
Taylor will go over what they did in 2011, what they hope to do the same and what they would change if Davenport is chosen this year.
And Taylor says two big events at the same time is really no big deal.
"Adding RAGBRAI to the mix really just kind of fits in. It just seems so natural. It's extra work but its not impossible extra work," says Taylor.
If Davenport is chosen as the end point this Saturday, we're told that planning will begin right away.
Davenport's city council meeting is Wednesday night at City Hall at 5:30.
