Do I just go to the RAGBRAI web site at 8:15 for the announcemnt party. Or do I need any special log on? I am registered for the evengt

Ed, they just do a live video stream. No log on or anything is necessary.

The party is three hours long. Can you please tell me when the announcement part will begin? Or do I need to give up my Saturday evening to wait? I will really enjoy the live streaming announcement and would rather watch that than just follow on Twitter.

Just go to ragbrai.com at 8:15 PM Saturday (tomorrow!) evening and look for the hyperlink to launch the live streaming and ur there! As a rule, the ensuing party doesn’t get around to the actual announcement until sometime after 9 PM but sit back and enjoy the show, have some jalapeno pretzels, some beer and wish you were there. :) To me it’s better than the Superbowl.

Time for IOWA to strike back, looking forward to long and hilly route this year!

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.Sugarland Roofing Contractor, 517 W. Hilary Circle, Sugar Land, TX 77498 – (281) 724-3750

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.

There’s no doubt that that you should write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not discuss these topics. To the next! Many thanks!!
