Cyclone; I have the accompanying sleeping bag with the “slot” in it to put the Big Agnes air pad. So it can’t get away! I think that’ll help a lot since neither are particularly wide.
Matt; I don’t lug anything on RAGBRAI, in fact I really wimp out and ride with a friend with a trailer! So I’ll be living the high life (you’re welcome for that shameless plug Miller Brewing Co). I plan on bagging it on other weekend rides and one long week long ride this year from Pittsburgh to D.C. I think it’s enough of a challenge to ride 70+ miles a day in the heat/rain/etc for 7 days. Thinking of doing that while carrying everything, well I’m not quite up for that yet. At least not on RAGBRAI. I’m still a virgin bagger (boy that sounds weird).
