  • Yeah, November 15th is an important date, it is C.W. McCall’s birthday. Do ya suppose it is the same C.W. that used to do the Council Bluffs shuffle with Mavis Davis??? I wonder when Mavis Davis was born???

    RIDE RIGHT (Just a little nonsense here, please forgive)

  • Of course it is….I was at the drive-in theater over by Pisgah watching “True Grit” and heard the whole story from Officers Lewis and Clark of the Pottawattamie County “Sin Patrol” there.

  • I got a cousin who lives between Moorhead and Soldier and he was told C.W. and Mavis did the Council Bluffs shuffle, in public, with the “Pisgah grip”!! That was scandalous in those days, some blue noses even boycotted Old Home Bread and (gasp) accused C.W. of mistreating Sloan. Fortunately the whole thing blew over quickly. I shudder to think about the Pisgah grip……….pity the children who may have witnessed the foul act!!!

    RIDE RIGHT

  • Registration opens for RAGBRAI 2014, in just 45 days. The route announcement party takes place in the middle of winter. I hate winter!!!! The announcement is about the only good thing about winter!!!!

  • Mich, how sure are you on the date for the Route Announcement Party?  If I want to attend I have to put in a request for time off to attend, and I can request days off no more than 90 days in advance….and they get filled so quickly that if I want to make sure I get, let’s say, 1/25/2014 I need to submit my request, online, immediately after midnight on 10/27/2013.

  • October 27th will mark 265 days to R-XLII.

    You may ask, why is that significant? 265 days?

    Because… 265 days is a full 100 days SHORT of a year to the ride. And you may think, “so.”

    So… if you are a first-time rider, consider: Ragbrai is a step-process!

    265 days leaves you…

    1) …Less than one month to registration opening.
    2) …Finding the leisurely bike rides that you have enjoyed over late summer (or since Ragbrai XLI) are officially at end. It is the time to start adding extra miles to each of your fall rides in preparation for Ragbrai XLII.
    4) …Considering purchasing an indoor trainer to maintain (or build) your biking fitness over the winter months.
    5) …If you have been waffling over the idea of participating in next year’s ride, you should commit NOW.
    6) …Informing your better half, friends, employer and possible support personnel that you will be fulfilling your dream in a mere 9 months. (!)
    7 …Realising you don’t have the bike of choice for multi-day road biking and considering obtaining one and/or taking advantage of late-season pricing.

    Did I omit anything?

  • I have another important date to add. Well important to me. I’m marring Judy Aug 23, 2014. I hope my RAGBRAI friends get to meet her next year. She is a cyclist. I finely found my biker chic!

  • Judy said the carpet has to go. She has talked me into replacing it with vinyl plank flooring. Its actually very derable and easy to lay.

    I’ll get a pic posted soon.
