I’m a little surprised that some support vendors are saying that they cannot cover two rides on consecutive weeks. Apparently they rely a lot on friends and family as workers and they also have trouble getting enough PTO. If both rides survive and thrive long term then I would suppose the vendors will work out how to handle both. It’s low hanging fruit after all.[/quote]
My guess would be that the majority of vendors will go where there will be more riders and that will be RAGBRAI by a lot. TJ will probably get some local vendors you wouldn’t usually see on RAGBRAI.
