I have a few added challenges in that I’m diabetic with some complications. The caloric monitoring is critical. Past that, I’ve completed 2,000 training miles and recently finished an 80 mile, 3,000+ feet of climb ride in 6 hours of moving time. Your post gives me great relief. I fully believe “RAGBRAI DON’T CARE.” Bring it on, RAGBRAI. Bring… it… on.
See you fine folks on the road.
