Jersey Idea for 2018

It seems just about everyone I ask which year is their favorite RAGBRAI jersey says its the 2008 jersey. Yellow background, corn stalks in the foreground with a small town water tower rising up saying RAGBRAI on it. For 2018 instead of a complete redesign how about celebrating that 2008 design by bringing it back on its 10th anniversary? It would be a big seller because of how many people weren’t on RAGBRAI 2008 and those that were maybe wore out the old one. I have no doubt that the DMR has someone who enjoys designing an all new jersey every year but maybe 2018 should be the exception?

I like your idea Moots!!! 2008 is my favorite jersey, I’d buy a newly remodeled version of it!!!

After your descriptions I went with PBV this past year. It was great so thanks for your idea also. They provided services I didn’t even know I wanted. While I missed my old team the tent service with the baggage delivery made the week even more vacation like.

They seem to want to tie in somehow with the ride. 2008 watertower. I saw that and said to TJ before the announcement the ride was coming to Ames. He asked why I thought that. I told him the Marston watertower. So it’s been 10 years, time to return to Ames? New route out to a new town (Gilbert has never been a pass through.

God forbid they might actually post it on THEIR own website.

On Facebook, one of the people commenting said the logo clue reminded them of college logos. So maybe a college host town or two… maybe all the towns will be college towns!;)

That would be an awesome route, Amanda!

something like Sioux City (SC Comm. Col.), Storm Lake, Fort Dodge (Ia Central C.C.), Ames (ISU), Marshalltown (Marshalltoen C.C.), Cedar Falls (UNI), Manchester, Dubuque (Loras College)?
