The Great Iowa Fall Ride registration is open!

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!!!

The bike is tuned light as a feather
Duffle packed my kit is together
Plans are made all things set
We may ride from sunrise to sunset
But how to control the weather?


Rob Fuller, July 15, 2021 at 4:30 pm

‘Its NOT going to rain on Tuesday!” Tom thundered.


HelenP, July 15, 2021 at 5:05 pm

“Hail and farewell, tall dark clouds!”, Tom said shockingly.

“If is does rain during RAGBRAI, how wet might I get?” Tom pondered.


HelenP, July 16, 2021 at 8:59 am

“A quick storm would feel good in the summer heat!”, Tom gushed effusively.

Which way will the wind blow?
Makes no difference from where I sit
Weathervane or rather vain
I’m styling in my aero-kit


Rob Fuller, July 16, 2021 at 12:02 pm

Am I ready for the miles?
Makes no difference on this seat
Water bottles or Waterloo
I’ve been training for the heat


HelenP, July 17, 2021 at 4:20 am

AYE, week, a week, until it starts!
OH, check your gear, and gears, and parts!
WHere shall we meet, with bikes and tools?
AH, happy, wise, 12 thousand fools!

Good morning, brethren and sistern Ragbrai’ers! I have returned from the wilderness. Let me offer my undying gratitude to HelenP and Rob Fuller for their wit and contributions to this thread. I just caught up with the thread this morning and can’t stop laughing!

Here’s a Tom Swifty, while I round back into shape:

“These headwinds are just awful! Tom blustered.

See you along the I-O-Way this weekend! Finally!!

Welcome back! We had a humor gap due to your absence, and now we have a humorous Gap due to your presence!

There’s a rumor that at the Expo there’ll be some vendors pedaling their wares! ;-)


Rob Fuller, July 20, 2021 at 11:58 am

HelenP, so we’ll said. And yes, I’d like to pedal some of their wares myself!


T. Gap Woo, July 21, 2021 at 8:07 am

“After a long, hard ride in the scorching Iowa heat, I’m ready for a cold glass of Cabernet Sauvignon!” Tom whined.

🤪 (rim shot)

See you along the I-O-Way in a few short days!!


Rob Fuller, July 21, 2021 at 9:59 am

Next week we’ll not be weak.
We’ll wheel our way
From our seat we’ll see it
See you all on the I-O-Way!


HelenP, July 21, 2021 at 10:40 am

“Or a scoop of Blue Bunny might be superior,” Tom continued icily.


T. Gap Woo, July 22, 2021 at 9:02 am

“My tire lost its pressure!” Tom said flatly. “But I patched the tube and reinflated it!” a pumped up Tom said airily.

🤪 (rim shot)

See you along the I-O-Way the day after tomorrow!
