I’m almost 100 percent sure RAGBRAI will get cancelled

I wouldn’t be surprised if it does…what are you going to do in place of RAGBRAI? It would be cool to go from the starting point in Iowa’s Ride (it’ll get cancelled) and go all the way to the west coast…hmmmmmm, many states over 2 weeks?? Anyone down to do this??

that would definitely be cool. Mask and wet wipes at the ready!

I live overseas and am coming to the states. Maybe I will try doing the ride in Minnesota end of July or ride in Michigan, start of August

Good luck with those. A much smaller ride is much more possible in a situation where physical distancing and other restrictions will still likely be in place. RAGBRAI is not like any other ride in the world. It is far larger and much more close contact in large gatherings throughout. I still believe it will be postponed a year similar to the Olympics. A virus outbreak on RAGBRAI would be like a wildfire.

I’m not looking for RAGBRAI to return until 2022, at the earliest. Even the Oxford and J&J vaccine scientists say that their fast track vaccines may not be available to the general public until Spring 2021. What will be required to register for RAGBRAI? A certificate of immunity or vaccination? What do you do with the “bandits” who have produced neither document? Folks, we may have seen our last RAGBRAI sponsored by the DMRegister.

The bandits will be fine. They will wear masks

I wonder how many suggesting masks have ever done RAGBRAI before or any cycling tour. The difficulty participating in a cardio intensive sport with those is a problem in terms of air flow. Add the sweat from a hot Iowa summer, makes it even worse.

🤪 (rim shot).

Good joke,bigbrad2008! I usually do a solo act, not a tandem, but I’m always glad to share the stage. Besides, farmers can use all the free fertilizer they can get.

See you along the I-O-Way whenever.

I will speculate that on April 15 that RAGBRAI management will tell us of their decision to ride or not ride in the third sentence of their blog. Anyone want to speculate on the over/under on that?

If I was a betting man I would lay money on the under. Pure speculation on my part.

HAHA my under bet came in. Pure speculation on my part but still in the money. Some time speculating pays off.

4th sentence. It is OBVIOUS

. Bigbrad2008 just off by a hair but good speculating.
