I agree that it will be north. Starting at Hawarden or Sioux Center. Mason City on day 3 or 4. Ending in Guttenberg or Clinton. Still working on the others.

I love the idea of far north and no major large cities. I’m voting for Hawarden then Sheldon as the start point and first overnight, otherwise I like your route IM.

Still a little blurry eyed from this years great event!

I vote for Hawarden as we have friends there who we have not seen in years! I like the idea of a northern ride!

Yep TJ,

I hope you’re reading this because we all know that what Michrider wants, Michrider gets (or you get to deal with Chuck Norris, and we know you don’t want that….)

Eagle Grove would be a great overnight. They really got into the swing of things as a pass through a few years ago. Anybody remember the guy dressed in the eagle costume up in the oak trees as we came into town???

RIGHT RIGHT

In Eagle Grove I remember being thrown in jail with Otis, the town drunk. Barney Fife did it.

I remember that Sandaltan! Eaglev Grove did a fantastic job last time. We’ve been there a few times over the years and that is one town that has embraced the event and learned how to do it better each time. Hats of to Eagle Grove. Maybe an overnight.

Davy & ST are right about Eagle Grove. It was a great pass through town. I still remember how the entire city turned out to feed us and make us feel welcome!

Eagle Grove rocked last time. If I remember right the golf course there made the best Vodka lemonade I’ve had on RAGBRAI they remembered to put the vodka in the drink LOL!

Hey, Pdiddly, Chuck Norris ain’t that tough.
He’s never ridden RAGBRAI.

I really enjoyed Humboldt and Eagle Grove last time we went through there but here’s the problem. You inevitably start sinking down towards the I-80 corridor. Don’t do it, TJ. We can pick up Eagle Grove again some year, and we should. But give us a break. Stay as far north as you can!!!
