So we live in Texas but we were in Waukon Iowa during the 2017 ride and got to hang out, meet folks, eat and party. So much fun! I used to mountain bike but I am 41 and do not ride anymore, for the most part I am out of shape (6ft/200lb). My now 12 year old son does triathlons but not long distance rides. Since Waukon he has been asking me to do a father son Ragbrai with him and he brought it up again today. (Thought it would fade) So I really need some help!! I think I am going to agree to this adventure, which means even buying a road bike, nutrition and training. I know nothing about RAGBRAI. So here are a list of questions.
Any issues with my son, he is a 7th grader.
What is the “most comfortable” way to do the RAGBRAI? Suggestions for contacts that would be kid friendly.
Anyone here in the Fort Worth Texas, Keller, North Richland Hills TX area?
Who thinks I am completely crazy!?
