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

They’re going to get everybody there, then make an announcement that due to security concerns it’s all been called off.

There shouldn’t be too many security concerns – the hooligan element will be safely tucked up in bed :-)

You because it 2:30 or 4:30 am (depending on whose math is right) or are you refering to Kain-tucky where it will be after 9:30 pm? :-)

Is it beyond the bounds of possibility that Manchester will be a host town this year? It would have been a blast to have met up there. It seems that there is a significant presence of perfectly behaved Mancunians riding bicycles accross Iowa.

Knots~~~it’s very unlikely we would overnight in Manchester this year as it was the Friday overnight just last year.  It was a very nice town to spend that last night of RAGBRAI, though, very indicative of the well-known English hospitality!!!

Helen. I can assure you that Knotbury and I will be on our best behaviour (with a “u”). We are taking language lessons and trying to learn a little of the local culture. We hope that by July, whatever the route, we will be able to communicate at least our basic needs.
I say old chap, beer, Kybo, beer, please……..
