Lisa, you should go for it! I have the same reservations that you do. In fact, while I know how to ride a bike that’s about it. I didn’t ride at all last year, even. But I’ve always wanted to do RAGBRAI and I’ve always said maybe next year, then maybe the next year, and I’m sick of being held back by only my own insecurities. None of my friends will do it either and my husband said “hell no!” so I just said screw them, I’ll do it myself. You will meet people on the ride or you can try to hook up with a team or group of people locally. Do it! As for a bike, keep an eye out for a used one as people start spring cleaning and the weather gets nicer.
