Funeral

Pierschbacher Funeral Home. (Lacona)

Not everything was fun and games. The local funeral home is right in the middle of RAGBRAI center. Unfortunately, a local citizen past away the day before RAGBRAI'S visit and visitation was set for 1:00 on July 23. Vehicles and activities were cleared to facilitate local friends to visit and prepare for the family at 6:00 pm. Where else but a small town can everything be worked out and handled without a major problem. Many of those paying their respects to the deceased were very involved in the activities.

With 10.000 plus riders, bicycle breakdowns and tire/rim problems occur frequently. This is one of the official repair contractors that accompany the ride to provide assistance. The location was in the middle of HWY G76 at town center.

A favorite attraction.
