  1. Select selection tool, black arrow, V
  2. Click on the line (handle) in the middle of the text and drag it upwards.

Tick the Flip box.

Depending on what version of Illustrator you are using, dragging the I-beam across the path can be troublesome. The flip box does it easily and without the jerky, uncontrollable, dragging which can occur at times. But dragging, as cockypop suggest, does work as well.
