My guess for the next RAGBRAI
Start: Le Mars, 55 miles, Pass Through Towns: Remsen, Marcus, Meriden, Cherokee, Aurelia, Alta; Storm Lake
Monday Morning: Storm Lake, 66 miles, Pass Through Towns: Verina, Fonda, Palmer, Pioneer, Humboldt
Tuesday Morning: Humboldt, 66 miles, Pass Through Towns: Thor, Eagle Grove, Galt, Dows, Coulter, Hampton
Wednesday Morning: Hampton, 39 miles, Pass Through Towns: Chapin, Sheffield, Rockwell, Burchinal, Emery, Mason City
Thursday Morning: Mason City, 63 miles, Pass Through Towns: Nora Springs, Rockford, Marble Rock, Greene, Shell Rock, Waverly
Friday Morning: Waverly, 75 miles, Pass Through Towns: Denver, Klinger, Fairbank, Oelwein, Strawberry Point, Back Bone State Forest, Forestville, Dundee, Manchester
Saturday Morning: Manchester, 50 miles, Pass Through Towns: Earlville, Dyersville, Field of Dreams Site, Sundown Mountain Ski Resort, Asbury, Dubuque
End: Dubuque, Total Miles: 414
Not clear to me if there will be a Century or Gravel Loop this time. If a Gravel Loop, probably on Wednesday. If a Century Loop, probably on Monday. I like the idea of incorporating a State Park/DNR site on the ride. If we were going to end in McGregor/Marquette, Pikes Peak State Park would be a natural. For an end in Dubuque, its got to be Back Bone State Forest. The Ski Resort could be a fun stop too.
