But walk ins are very welcome to attend.Ken Urban has gotten a special guest for us this year.
RAGBRAI for Rookies Seminar
Author Greg Borzo will be a special guest at the 2014 RAGBRAI for Rookies seminar/open house on February 1st. Borzo published “RAGBRAI- America’s Favorite Ride” in 2013. He interviewed hundreds of participants including QCBC legend Carter Lebeau. He collected a lavish collection of historic and contemporary RAGBRAI photographs and cartoons. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
The free presentation is open to the general public and will cover topics including: application preparation, training advice, luggage, logistics, safety, and maintenance. The format this year will feature a presentation by Greg Borzo and QCBC RAGBRAI veterans followed with an open house. Guests can get individual attention on topics that they have questions on. A multimedia slide presentation will share photos from past years. Refreshments will be served.
Veteran riders and first timers are all welcome to share ideas and stories. Bring your old inner tubes and wheels if you need some coaching on patching and tube replacement!
