[quote quote=1313051]The nearly half century old RAGBRAI institution is going to collapse if it refuses to cow-tow to TJ and his merry band of 450 hard-core Iowa bike club members? It has to ask permission to tag along with his ride? Three quarters of the thousands of RAGBRAI registrants don’t even know there is some sort of controversy, or don’t care. Registration numbers may be down 5 to 10% in 2020 and the new staff will probably make some mistakes. So what?[/quote]
It will be a transition year. And one person’s mistake could be just our adventure to adapt. Cyclists always adapt. Ex: Tree down across the road, hop off the bike and walk around (happened once). Possible example on RAGBRAI: too few Kybos?, knock on a door and (awkwardly) make a new friend.
