Seeing the bicycle-themed NOLA Pictorial Postmark 2019 with today’s date is timely, making this another day of bicycles with my blog posts here at AnchoredScraps.  This is one Pictorial Postmark I’m requesting, to go with my new Vintage Bicycle Printable Stationery we were looking at yesterday.

When I see an interesting one, such as today’s Roll Into Nola Pictorial Postmark 2019, it is fun to find out a little bit behind what the event is recognizing.

First, I’m including this excerpt from the Des Moines Register last week –  

“RAGBRAI XLVII starts July 21 in Council Bluffs and ends 427 miles later in Keokuk on July 27, with stops in Atlantic, Winterset, Indianola, Centerville, Fairfield and Burlington in between. Brian Powers, bpowers@dmreg.com”…

“The bicycles are coming! The bicycles are coming!

The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa rolls into Indianola on Tuesday.  

This is the second time RAGBRAI has stopped in Indianola. The first stop was 10 years ago.

Riders will be coming off the shortest leg of ride — 39.9 miles — and the smallest climb — 1,374 feet — so they should be ready to have some fun. 

Indianola organizers have dubbed the overnight stop the “Shortest Ride to the Longest Party…” 

Secondly, this means today is day three of the RAGBRAI XLVII.

And here is a clickable image of a partial screenshot of the website.
