Fate of RAGBRAI “Training Rides”?

I wonder when the RAGBRAI “training” rides will announce delays or cancellations (Bacoon Ride, The Big Rove)? Some of those are more then 2 months before RAGBRAI. But easier to cancel so a shorter lead time to decide. RDaryl just sent me a note saying the Pigtails has been bumped to August 8th. I’d guess the other 2 would make similar postponements as their dates approach. And they would be compatible with school being in session. RAGBRAI obviously would not be.

I am sure we will be informed of the details of the Iowa Bicycle Coalition/Iowa Bicycle Action Fund social charity rides with enough time to plan our ride experiences.

As with all of life’s events in this season of uncertainty, I suggest we focus on taking advantage of each day to get out on a ride and do other productive activities. I find no benefit to worry about future events I cannot control.
If our summer bike rides get cancelled, somehow life will go on.

Last year’s big worry involved how E-Bikes would potentially destroy RAGBRAI.
I am sure 2021 will bring another emotionally charged subject.

I recently started to go through so old photos and forward copies to friends.
Another suggestion is to call a friend you have not talked to in a while. Share some memories over a conversation rather than a series of texts, e-mails, or social media posts.

Hopefully we all get through this season creating unique experiences resulting in memories we can share in the years to come.

Peace-
RD

The Bacoon Ride just posted to FB a note encouraging riders to register. A good sign they intend to go ahead with the ride.
