Looking at getting into Ragbrai for the first time but have a prior obligation in Ames on Friday evening – Sunday.
Thinking of biking until Wed morning in Des Moines and then journying via bike (and pack) to Ames to meet up with family by Fri evening.
Totally unfamiliar with biking in the area. Any idea where camp is in Des Moines and feasibility to get to Ames safely on bike? Since I have an extra day don’t need to do direct route but don’t want to put in a century with pack either.
