Thursday morning in Sully my recumbent’s steering mechanism broke, rendering the bike useless. I was in the process of zip-tying the bits together to ready it for the sag wagon when local resident Ron offered to help. He ended up driving me to Lynnville where he knew a guy who could “fix anything”. In the end there was no saving it, but…..what can I say? This level of kindness and generosity is what makes RAGBRAI and Iowa very special. Ron, if you read this or hear about it, thank you again.
