giantron said: I’m starting this thread for the new RAGBRAI riders with some tips not in the Ride Right handbook we can offer them (and all of us) on staying safe this year. It seemed like there were more than the usual amount of crashes last year and an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of bandages.

Let’s be careful out there!! I’d love to see a lot more bored ambulance drivers this year.

Pacelines on RAGBRAI equal “Stranger Danger”!!!!!!  Center crack; last year I came up on a scene of a young woman who had gotten her wheel caught in one of those cracks.   For about 10 ft, you could see where she dug the sand up out of the crack.  Medics were taking care of her on the side of the road.  Not the way you want to meed the medics!!!!
