In preparation for the thousands of cyclists and revelers coming to Cedar Falls for the overnight RAGBRAI stop, organizers are asking for volunteers to help.

The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) will roll into Cedar Falls on Wednesday, July 22. The stops theme is "It's All Downhill From Here."

Organizers say it will take nearly 1000 volunteers to facilitate the event. Areas of need include hospitality, vending and the beverage garden, as well as campground hosts and entertainment. Volunteers can choose their time commitment, and roles by registering online at cedarfallsragbrai.org.

RAGBRAI last came to Cedar Falls in 2007. Then, about 2100 requests for accommodations were made. Those interested in hosting can register online

Approximately 18,000 riders are expected.
