A Big Thanks to Mark Wyatt and the Iowa Bicycle Coalition for the Safety Tips



We just wanted to thank Mark Wyatt, the Executive Director of the Iowa Bicycle Coaltion, for writing the RAGBRAI RIDE RIGHT Safety Blogs this year.  Mark gave some great tips to help you prepare so you can enjoy RAGBRAI safely.

We have the pleasure of working with Mark each year on the RAGBRAI Route Announcement Party that benefits the IBC and were happy to have Mark and his wife Jen on this year’s pre-ride.  Mark, thanks for all you do to promote safe and fun cycling through Iowa.

Be sure to stop by and say hi to Mark at the RAGBRAI Expo in Glenwood.  The Iowa Bicycle Coalition booth will have the World Tire Changing Championships and Mini-Bike Sprints.  You might also find him and Jen in the downtowns of each overnight community checking out the bands and the scene.  (Mark could also write the music blog for future RAGBRAIs!)
