Just make sure you get in your “saddle” time. Alot of time spent on the saddle. The rest will fall right into place. You want your saddle to “fit you like a glove” so to speak. Ride every day or every other day, even if it’s only 20-30 miles, so you get used to riding, eating, visiting, having the time of your life, sleeping and repeating the next day and the next day and the next day………getting the picture?! Ragbrai will truly become the best time you spend on your bike, even if you only experience it once, which I doubt will happen. It’s like eating a Lays pototoe chip….you can’t eat just one and you can’t, or won’t want to, only ride one Ragbrai. You’ll make lifelong memories and become fast friends with others by the thousands that will always be there for you on the road…….Ragbrai is about freedom and it’s the best group of people involved that you’ll ever run across. You’re in for the treat of your life. See everyone in July…..ride on!!!!
