RAGBRAI Reunion Ride?

With now 3 RAGBRAI training rides maybe its time to consider a RAGBRAI reunion ride? The last weekend in August before Labor Day might be a good fit. Something that allows at least riders in nearby states to make it.

I thought even “The Big Rove” might be a candidate to be moved in the schedule to be a reunion ride instead of a training ride as its under 40 miles.

What RAGBRAI training rides are you referring to? Is this just for a specific group and not for the masses?

RAGBRAI Training Series was officially created this year – Pigtails/Bacoon/Big Rove.
Years back, there actually was a “RAGBRAI reunion ride”.
An internet search reveals at least one RAGBRAI Reunion event from 2009 as per the Bike Iowa Website.

Paul’s Bacon Ride this weekend in Brainerd, MN is a perfect reunion ride and there’s still time to sign up! See you there Daryl?

I’m in for Paul’s Bacon Ride this Saturday! I missed out last year and didn’t want to miss out this time. Really looking forward to it. ?
