The Great Iowa Fall Ride registration is open!

Anyone else making this a double crossing?

I am riding to the start the week before RAGBRAI? I will be converting RAGBRAI into two week fully load tour carrying all my stuff.

Done this a few times before and find it more rewarding than riding a lightweight road bike a few hundred miles; no offense intended.

Thanks,
Keith

I think its a great way to train if you can afford to do it and have the resources. You would either end up exhausted or in very good condition for Ragbrai depending on you went. I hope to do this myself in the future when I feel my health and finances are up to it. I think if I was taking all my own gear with me I would plan on finding a laundry mat or two along the way as well as planning for a hotel or two. The other logistic would be a place to park my car somewhere at the beginning where it would be safe and secure until the end of Ragbrai.
