Four friends and I drove through the rain from Dallas to Mena, AR for a great fall ride last weekend. We managed a 12 mile warm up ride Friday night, then rode 70 miles in the annual Wheel A Mena ride on Saturday, then rode 30 miles as a recovery ride on Sunday.
The attraction to Mena was the scenery, the climbs (5,300′) on Saturday and the hospitality. Absolutely have to give the ride volunteers an A+ for their friendliness.
Is anybody else doing any great fall rides to maintain their Ragbrai conditioning?
