Mr. Bill, while I appreciate your nostalgia for the good ole RAGBRAI days, you’re dealing with a different crowd now. Right, wrong or indifferent, the majority of the riders these days don’t want (or don’t care about) gravel and they don’t want to be forced into doing 100 miles. This is fun to talk about in the offseason but there’s no going back. The DMR wants riders and they won’t do anything to discourage them from signing on to ride.

Yeah, I’d like to see the riders in the Tour de France have to change their own flats like in the good ole days but it aint happening, now or anytime soon.
