Awesome! Can’t wait to see the route for 2017. I bet it won’t surpass the elevation of 2016? Who says that Iowa is flat?

Dave, or anyone else do you know about what time the actual announcement will happen? I think the party starts at 7 but it seems that the announcement didn’t happen till much later. Maybe 9? I want to stream the announcement if possible.

Last year was my first Ragbrai ride. I was told by my Doctors not to do it. I have MS and heat is not my friend. My challenge was, can I endure the heat and how far can I make it. I made all 7 days, thanks to my incredible team and the Ragbrai team. Making sure that venders, the people along the route, and the cities we stayed at were well prepared for us, was an incredible undertaking by the Ragbrai Team. My team and I will be back every year from now on and promote it as one of the most fun rides we have been on.
Thank you,
Les Gatrel
