Reply To: What was with all the car traffic this year?

The car traffic was awful this year, especially the first few days. On Tuesday, in between Kellerton and Decatur City I was almost hit by a SAG vehicle hauling a load of bikes! I realize that there also seemed to be a lot of cyclist not heeding the “car back” or “car up” calls, but quickly swinging into a lane filled with cyclists by a SAG was not the way to go. I was on the right side of the road too. It seems that the traffic on the roads has increased the past few years (this was my 13th RAGBRAI). I can understand locals needing to get to places since there are not a lot of other options down south, but it was the RVs and other team support vehicles on the route that baffled me. They have the vehicle routes, what were they doing on the rider route?
