I recognize that the timing is not ideal, but I will be attending a wedding in Washington DC the Saturday night before RAGBRAI starts. I have a 6:00 a.m. flight that (if all goes well) gets me into Omaha at 9:25 a.m. Sunday morning. I plan to be in my bike clothes, not check a bag, and take a cab or Uber directly to the RAGBRAI start, where my sister will be waiting with our bikes. We are first time riders, and I don’t know what to expect. Can we start that late? Is the course sufficiently marked to allow us to find our way? Any input would be most appreciated.
