Solo Rider – Can’t Wait!

I’ve done other weeklong tours, some organized and some on my own. None of them could prepare me for the fun that awaits at my first RAGBRAI.

Looking forward to meeting fellow riders, the people along the way, and the people in the overnight towns. Fueling up on Pie, Ice Cream, and the odd beer to sustain me. Hired a charter for tent service because this is the one week I really don’t want to haul all of that.

Since I’m not with a team, I think I’ll put a sign on the rear of my bike saying “Solo Rider”. For those who have ridden RAGBRAI before, is this a common thing? I’ll meet, talk to, or hang out with anyone but us solo riders may need someone in the same situation to bond with! :/)

Any others out there?

I ride Solo and no problem talking to people, this will be my 5th full ride. Fist ones I had a small team, we split up and meet in each town. Everyone is friendly, except for a few, you will have no problem just talk!
