I really appreciate Dave’s articles. I can’t say I’m as up-to-snuff as I should be and didn’t begin training as early as I should have, but his information has been extremely helpful and realistic and gives me hope that my knees will last through the week.

Thank You Coach Dave. I have been reading your articles and have logged over 1000 miles of training and feel good about doing RAGBRAI. This will be my 5th RAGBRAI and probably my best training year. Bring on the Des Moines river valley I am ready!!!
