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

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……..

Curb drinking!!!!  Helen will fill ya in!!!

Probably the most important thing to learn about is American beer, precious little of which really is.  The best beer comes from breweries you’ve never heard of, so read up on American breweries then avoid the ones you’ve read about.

Ain’t that the truth!

Yep, but the BMC products will be 90% of what you find during the week.

I’ll have one of each, thank you!!!!

ALL OF YOU – WRONG THREAD!!!!!!

Phzzt!!

I may start a transatlantic banter thread while I am sitting here drinking beer waiting for the route to be announced.

I suspect that the west was won by people on the wrong thread :-)

I will be at a track meet during the announcement.  It would be great if someone would text me.  Hint hint!

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!!!     
Manchester, Iowa?  English hospitality??

Manchester is about as English as the Eiffel Tower!!

It’s actually all about that Midwest hospitality that came over with the original settlers in this area — primarily the Germans and the Scandinavians.  And you’ll find it lots of other areas besides Manchester.

Remind me to tell you about my experiences in Cooper sometime…….
