See our whole 89-mile trail in 8 minutes & 50 seconds!


This video tour follows “Team Bat,” a well-known RAGBRAI group, as they ride the full length of the Raccoon River Valley Trail and visit all 14 communities. The highly entertaining video, new in early 2015, received an “Award of Excellence” in the Iowa Motion Picture Awards in early May. The $15,000 project was completed with donations from many communities and organizations along the trail, and a $3,100 grant from the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

Director & videographer is Kent Newman, an award-winning documentary maker, and the producer is Kevin Wilbeck, of the RRVT Association.
