DES MOINES (KWWL) -

RAGBRAI is just under two months away - but around 30 bikers are already on the route to make sure everything will run smoothly.

The team started on Sunday, and will ride the entire route throughout the remainder of the week.

The RAGBRAI Route Inspection Pre-Ride Team will pedal 462 miles across the state, inspecting the route.  The team will also be looking at traffic patterns.

The team includes RAGBRAI Director T.J. Juskiewicz, RAGBRAI Assistant Director Scott Garner and the Iowa Bicycle Coalition's Executive Director Mark Wyatt.  Bicycle shop owners, past RAGBRAI committee chairs and veteran riders also make up the team.

When the real event comes, this year's ride begins in Sioux City on July 19 and travels through Storm Lake, Fort Dodge, Eldora, Cedar Falls, Hiawatha, Coralville, and Davenport.
