Route Announcement

First time RAGBRAI rider here, so maybe a dumb questions: I am not able to be at the route announcement party, so what is the best way to hear about the route in close to real time as possible.

Thanks
JS

You earned your vacation so I’d not even think about riding by your company’s headquarters.  That, and I’m hoping for a northern route.

  My tickets came in the mail yesterday. Going to bid on the Trek 1.2 (I’ll never even come close to what that bike will go for) My nephew out grew his bike and needs another bike. Of course he does. Just waiting for the 29th to get here. I’m so done with winter.
  Is it summer?

Knots…I love your British humor…RAGBRITS!!!  My wife is a Brit, but several generations removed from your side of the pond.   Her maiden name was Bardsley…her family came from the Manchester area,  I believe.  Try to get lots of sun before coming to Iowa…there will be plenty of it here, if all goes as usual, for the week of RAGBRAI.   Hope to meet you all this summer on the ride.  Knees.

Knees????? You tell this…this….this hooligan, that your wife is from the Manchester area – and not me?!?!?!? Do I mean nothing to you? I am crushed.

Helen…do you mean to tell me that you’re an emigrant from across the pond???!!!  How  did  I miss that???  I was pretty sure you were a Brit by ancestry but JUST NOW I’m thinking you’re a real Brit who just happens to live in California???  Heck,  I thought most of the British emigrated to these shores back in the 1700’s!!!  What took you so long to get here???  I apologize profusely, but you’re going to have to settle your own score with “Knots”, calling him a hooligan and such.  Blimey~~~did  I ever step into this one up to my gonies!!!

Whaaattt!!!  No way, you weren’t born in Manchester too!!!  You and Knots are going to have a lot to talk about unless you come from opposite side of the tracks. Yep,  I got your nice “thank you” letter and the pic of your “two wheeler.”  Nice set~~~of wheels!!!  Do you know him from some time back in your hometown~~~er, city?  You can probably guess that  I’m trying to avoid just how hurt you might be by my transgression…but  I’m truly hoping you’ll come out this trauma okay and find a way to forgive these old bones or brain cells, whatever is to blame!!!  Catch’ya’ later, HH.  Knees.

Do they have electricity in the UK yet?  I can’t remember if we let them have that yet or not.
