What a wonderful idea! I cannot think of a better way to spend a late summer day than to bicycle along the Mississippi River. Honoring and remembering Carter — a RAGBRAI legend and icon — is truly fitting and highly appropriate.
I would give anything to participate in this tribute, but now that school is back in session for the year, this poor ol’ teacher cannot make the 1000 mile journey to Iowa. However, I will be there in spirit.
In addition, my local bike shop is sponsoring a Bike-to-Brunch ride Sunday 9/14. Not only will I be wearing my RAGBRAI 42 jersey, but also my RED and BLUE Carter Lebeau socks!
Best wishes for a successful ride and warmest regards to the hostesses.
