I think the best question I was asked is, “why did they stop doing them in the first place”? Has anyone researched it? I hope this has had a little more thought than it is a tribute.

My first Ragbrai rides were in 04 and 05 on a mountain bike. Part of the route was on gravel roads. Another tradition that went away in 06 and beyond. From the number of riders on road bikes crashing on the gravel and ambulances, I see why. Now maybe Ragbrai can return to this mandatory gravel tradition and call it a tribute too.
