To “ghost” a race/ride/whatever means to participate without officially signing up. I assume that is meant here.

NathanZ-Thank you for your reply.  Yes, I thoughts so. How does RAGRAI control the ppl who do not pay to ride?  Is this fair to the other participants?

A Ghostbike is one painted white and put out at the scene of a fatal bike/car collision like roadside crosses, flowers or other memorials.
And if RAGBRAI could figure out an answer to your question about how to controll bandits…it would reduced the ride by half near bigger cities and probably cut a couple thousand everyday.

The Little Stoker keeps telling me that women are smarter than men and I should just accept that.  The evidence keeps mounting.  Accumulating I meant to say.

RIDE RIGHT

Thank you everyone for your comments!  This was a ride that my bf originally wanted to ride-not me.  I am a fitness competitor and I rarely ride bikes.  All my extra time is spent in the weight room.  I actually don’t even own a bike.  (I know this is pathetic!!!)  My knees are bad from years of power tumbling.  Anyways, I am the one now that wants to ride safe and he is absolutely against buying my way and his own for that matter.  He is stubborn and doesn’t care. I am not going to worry about it anymore.  My focus is positive thinking!!   I bought a wristband last night and I am going to train hard and have fun at RAGBRAI 2011!  See you all there!!  :-D
