Greg, welcome to the small but mighty sub-group of Recumbent Ragbrai. Hard to improve on the list from Jboz, but I would add that it is a real good idea to get in some practice riding in a group. The bigger the better. There is nothing in your post about your other riding experience so forgive me if this is old news to you. Even tho folks warned me before my first ride in 2012, I was still stunned on the first day by the crush of riders jostling their way out of town, both lanes tight and no room for error. Be ready to hear “on your left” all day every day.
The best part for me is stopping in the pass through towns, finding a local, and asking them about their town and what they like about it. What should I see before I leave? That has never failed to reveal a treasure I would have missed otherwise. Take your time. Enjoy the ride.
