Karras Loop

The “official” Ride Spot route for day 4 has been posted. The Karras loop isn’t as I expected. Although maybe they are just giving in and accepting how half the people would have ridden it?

I don’t see any change to it.

Did you look at the ride spot version? It runs the clockwise around Rathbun and cuts out part of the standard course. Which results in a loss of about 15 miles.

That doesn’t seem right. It isn’t a loop then. Plus it hasn’t changed on the RAGBRAI website or blog.

Yeah, hoping it is a mistake. The RideSpot maps are made by RAGBRAI. But obviously there are several people managing these things, new tools, and perhaps they just clicked out the wrong route.

On the other hand, they did write “optional section” not “optional loop”. So perhaps they did know something.

Interesting, but I think it is a mistake. I suspect someone at Ride Spot thought it was to be a hundred miles and made it fit. I will be doing the loop unless I hear a more official source say it’s an optional section.

The map shows you going the other direction. Ragbrai shows you going to Walnut City 2 times, the other map does not. One or the other is a mistake. I’m guessing it is https://www.ridespot.org/rides/108688 as RAGBRAI’s official matches up with miles.

The RideSpot route is incorrect. They are going to fix it.

It appears that the Ride Spot routes have been updated
-Days 1 and 4 Loops
-Day 6 through Goede State Park
-Days 6 and 7 end/start near West Burlington – likely the point where the route is turned over to the Burlington RAGBRAI Committee.
Updated Karras Loop route for Day 4:
