my husband and I are vets of ragbrai and we just moved to des moines so we need to find a new team to ride with. looking for a team that isn’t too big and would love a team that may have connections for overnight towns, I may be able to help too, but not a big deal if not possible! My husband would need a ride to the start town with his bike and bags and I would join everybody wednesday. We are late 30′s early 40′s and enjoy a nice cold beer or 3 after a day of riding. I usually have to start the day pretty early(not to fond of riding in heat) so don’t have to worry about us sleeping in if you need to move on to the next town early.
I emailed that guy twice in the past month with no response, I just sent him a pm too, maybe his team is full.
bikejohnston we are very interested, and willing to help with any van rental for people and uhaul rental for gear, drivers, etc… I assume you may have a lot of interested people in the des moines area.
