RAGBRAI LI July 20 -27, 2024

I completed my first full RAGBRAI last year. I started road biking at the age of 57 in 2018. I have completed three 100-mile rides in the past 4 years in moderately hilly Johnson County. I enjoyed the century rides but was wiped out the day after. I also had the benefit of sleeping in my air-conditioned house after my century rides and did not face three more days of long distance riding. Although I am confident that I will be able to complete the century on this year’s route, I believe it is a mistake for RAGBRAI to have not offered a shorter route that day. For many of us the point of riding RAGBRAI is the sense of accomplishment of riding from one side of Iowa to the other. One of the great things about RAGBRAI is that riders of almost any age, size and shape can do the complete route. The offer of extra SAG wagons defeats that principle.
