New year, new website, new yucks 🤪

Let’s take this baby for a test ride and see how it handles! If I don’t hit any bumps and crash, I’ll post a new joke starting tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed.

Hip hip hooray for ALL of Team Ragbrai at the DMR, from the Pilot to the Stoker to all of the links in this chain.

See you along the I-O-Way in July!!!

I know an old gent named Ike.
He loves his recumbent trike!

He rides night and day.
Nothing stands in his way.

Ike really likes his ol’ bike!

See you along the I-O-Way in a few short weeks.

There was a shy biker named Sid.
Sid was an unusual kid.

When asked by a girl
To go for a whirl,

Sid jumped off his bike and Sid hid!

An elephant biker packed pretty,
With trunks in her front and back sitting,
Grey faced, rather saggin’,
Climbed onto the wagon,
But, first pub, fell off in Sac City.

A local police department in my hometown decided to conduct a bicycle-ride fundraiser several years ago, back in the “good old days” before Covid. Planning was meticulous, with everything worked out down to the last detail: route signage; sag wagons; refreshment stops; traffic control; the whole shebang!

On the day of the ride, disaster struck. In the wee hours of the morning before the ride rolled out, someone stole all of the kybos. The thief or thieves left no clues, so the police had nothing to go on.

See you along the I-O-Way in a bit more than two weeks!

From LeMars to Sac City
We were all feelin’ witty
Then came Waterloo
Full party and brew
Now back on the bike. What a pity!

FWIW, I’ll be off the grid for the next 10ish days, in the internet-free hinterlands. Before I go, here’s a Tom Swifty to hold you over:

“My bicycle wheels are broken and out-of-true!” Tom spoke out.

“Using my road bike for that was a poor choice,” Tom continued in a gravelly voice.

The discount rack still has some deals:

and “Wild E-bikes”, by Helen Wheels.

“I don’t believe there will be a RAGBRAI stage on Friday” Tom said unWittingly.

Day 2 Haiku

Countless rows race by,
Line up across the land,
In earshot, Fort Dodge.

Corn high
Corn low
Corn all I can see
Gear high
Gear low
I wonder how wide my tires should be?

well there’s no way to post a new thread today (July 13, 2021).
anyone else having problems getting the iOS app to update?
I deleted the old app & data and reinstalled…..
error message about not being connected to internet.
perhaps server is overloaded?
will Drunkbrian have his app this year?

Festival for me and you,
Music, food, and drink, wahoo!
So pedal fast and long we do,
For party time in Waterloo!
