I’m looking to join a team in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area for 2014. I’ve done RAGBRAI 3 times on my own or with friends, and each time it has been a logistical nightmare with rides and sags. I know its early, but hit me up if your team has space.
If in the Omaha – Co. Bluffs area you can meet dozens of riders on the Thursday Taco Ride. Many are on teams and/or clubs that ride RAGBRAI. Search Thursday Taco Ride, they are on FaceBook plus there is plenty of other info on the ride. http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/thursdaynightride/
I too am looking for a team for my husband and I to join. We figured if we couldn’t find one, we would just be a two man team, but it would be awesome to join a team.
This will be our first year riding RAGBRAI (2014) and it would be nice to find people our age to join (we will be very close to 50 by July 2014!)
We are our of Menlo, Iowa which is about 40 mile west of Des Moines. If anyone at all is interested in adding us to your team, that would be AWESOME!! We are both fun people, love to ride and have a good time! Please hit me up here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey Skrad, did you end up finding a cool team? Another newbie here from the Omaha metro, and just getting up off my butt to do this now. I will be looking up local bike clubs in the meantime but know that winter meetings can be sparse!
Gotcha. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I went to the registration area and joined up with Omaha Newbies. There are 2 of us in the group at last check. I tried emailing the chick who started it a week or two ago and haven’t heard back…If she doesn’t respond soon I may look elsewhere. I’m athletic but getting back in the saddle and looking for a pretty easygoing team, 20s or early 30sish. What kind of team are you looking for? Interested in starting one if we mesh? I’m still talking to people in the area and trying to feel out potential riders, but don’t know many bikers yet.
