7/23/22 — 1st Day — Do we ride from Sargeant Bluff to Ida Grove?

This is my first time so I’m wondering….
Do we ride from Sergeant Bluff and sleep in Ida Grove on Saturday 7/23 ?
Or do we sleep in Sergeant Bluff on Saturday 7/23 and ride out to Ida Grove on 7/24 thereby sleeping in Ida Grove on 7/24?

Sleep in Sergeant Bluff on Saturday 7/23 and ride to Ida Grove on Sunday 7/24.

Pre-ride Saturday 7/23 afternoon and evening could be called Day 0. There will be lots of “car-up!” traffic bringing in cyclists. Usually there’s a variety of vendors and festivities. 2021 had live music. Its worth camping that night to absorb the RAGRBAI vibe before the Sunday 7/24 start.

Saturday has all of the venders, lots of food and a very big party starting a bit afternoon and going to way to late in the morning for some. There will be literally hundreds of venders with every thing you could ever think of and then some for bicycles. Also discounted Ragbrai gear from years past at a good price. A extra bonus day of fun.
