I’m glad to see that TJ is keeping his hand in the Iowa bicycle ride game. There are certainly other states that would welcome his leadership on rides but I suppose his heart is in Iowa now and it will be difficult to move him. It sounds like a good plan, it sounds like you will actually be riding with TJ in fact! That and the other changes to the ride will make it a lot more like the first few RAGBRAIs so it could be a chance to recreate history in a fashion. If it succeeds then I suppose that the ridership will grow and it will become more like the modern version of RAGBRAI so act now if a smaller ride suits you! If all goes to plan I will be retired by then but I fear I would still have trouble getting two weeks off in a row so I think I will miss this one. Maybe I could do the 2022 ride instead of RAGBRAI, that would have some scheduling advantages for my team. But, I will continue to do RAGBRAI mostly.
