My son and I are still deciding if we are able to make it again … we’re in the Los Angeles County area.  Last year was our first Ragbrai.  We drive out to the end city, take an east/west bus (thanks PBV) and then may travel around Chicago/St. Louis after the ride.

My first tip:  be prepared for HOT weather.   And put as many miles on your bike as you can before you get to Iowa.  Since Iowa is not flat, training on hills is a good idea – I travel up to the Paso Robles area to ride and the hills to the west are good training terrain.
