Day three of RAGBRAI is underway, and many riders are getting some help from caffeine.
Some bicyclists were up early Tuesday morning to get on the road and beat the heat.
To do that, they stopped by the Adams Street Espresso shop in Creston, Iowa, for a caffeine boost.
But riders can’t always find places like this at their stops.
Rider Mark Wilkins said he loves coffee but hasn’t had time for it yet during his tight schedule, but he did find time for it Tuesday morning.
“I’m really thankful that I found this place this morning,” said Wilkins. “I got some coffee and I’m starting to wake up.”
