I think have found some inaccuracies in the daily route maps for this year’s Ragbrai. I assume these maps are just to give us the idea of the route with all the bugs worked out later.
On Days Three and Four we will be riding near Emmetsburg on road B55. What is labeled as D55 is just another part of B55.
Day Five is missing the label for road B35 or 245th street. This is as we leave Mason City and it connects Kentucky and Thrush streets.
On Day Seven the Yellow River Road does the ENE heading section after Postville. This joins X 16 at a T intersection. X 16 goes mostly North and is labeled I76 on the Ragbrai map. We are only on 76 for about half a mile before we turn onto 9 which takes us into Waukon. Finally, we finish the ride on x 52 or the Great River Road which is not shown.
I know we have lots of time yet to verify the maps, but I don’t want others to be wondering about them as I was. Let me know if what I pointed out is confusing or if I have made a mistake. I’m just getting the fever.
