The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

skate board dude

Did anybody see the skate board dude and did he make it the whole route?

I rode by him at least 4 times and he looked pretty tired later in the week, just wondering.

Saw him on Saturday as he was preparing to finish.  Tough mofo.

He is from Colorado. They make people tougher in the West 🙂

saw him on Saturday as well.  He looked like rolling death; just beat.  But he did it!

Unless skateboard guy quit on route the last day, he finished.  As “getbent” stated, he’s from Colorado, specifically from Boulder.  This isn’t his first endurance event on his board… and his skateboard is his main mode of transportation.  I chatted with him a few times during the week and learned that he boards 20 miles to work everyday.  I never got what his line of work is, but he’s taken 3 months off and was heading to Alaska next….I assume via a car or plane.  Definitely a tough guy.

I tried to get a pic of him but didn’t. If u have one would you post the pic on my fb page? (See my profile for the link). I would like it for my R-39 photo collection. Thanks!

Bacchettaman, there are a couple of pictures in the RAGBRAI galleries in Monday’s pictures.  If you go back to the main RAGBRAI website, then click on galleries, then RAGBRAI 2011 on Monday, you’ll find 2 pictures of him.

I twittered this picture of him on thursday. He and his friend did the century loop, but his friend was whipped and sore the next morning so the friend took off at least Wednesday. Ryan, on the other hand kept on cruising! Ryan, tweet me of you see this!
