Team Air Force

I have a few pictures from July 27 – where Team Air Force bailed me out 3X
was wondering if there was an email address I could send these pictures to to identify the most helpful riders

thanks so much!

I am active duty Air Force and rode RAGBRAI this here and know quite a few of the AF team members. If you want to send them to me I can get them to the team here and they may be able to send them off.

My son is in the Air Force and is interested in riding with the Air Force. What does he need to do? This will be my first time at RAGBRAI

If need-be, he (you) can just show up for the ride, stop by the Ragbrai Information Booth and they will be happy to direct/map you to where Team Air Force is stationed at each overnight town. Have a great first Ragbrai!

The Air Force Cycling Team provides an invaluable service on RAGBRAI. Thankfully, I had no breakdowns so did not need their help. As a former Canadian Air Force brat I did chat with a few of them; they were all interesting and friendly folks.

Many thanks to them.

My 10 year old grandson was riding with me one day on the 2016 Ragbrai going into Muscatine when a member of the Air Force Team pulled up next to him and gave him a Air Force wristband. You would have thought that thing was made of gold. I think he wore it until it rotted off his arm. He spent the rest of the summer telling everyone he was going to join the Air Force. Thanks for all you guys do. You sure made a positive impression on a 10 year old boy!

The airforce bike team members are fantastic, angels on wheels earning their wings ! I did not have to use their help personally, however, I did see them help tons of riders along the route. Several times when I had stopped to rest they asked if everything was ok as they rode by making sure I was ok . I have the utmost respect for those riders…..they appeared to be very experienced riders to boot .They are a great service to Ragbrai !! God bless them and thank you on behalf of all the riders they have helped over the years .

As others have noted above, the Air Force Team is not only on RAGBRAI to ride and have fun. They are there to serve. A few years ago I witnessed the Air Force Team arriving at the dip site en masse. There were about 100 on the team that year. It was a very moving, patriotic experience that I will never forget.

Unfortunately, my wife had to use their services last year. They were tremendous and spent a huge amount of time helping her get her chain fixed well enough to get her to the end of the day where we cold get some permanent repairs.
Our son is at Iowa State in Air Force ROTC and it made us very proud to be associated with such a great group of men and women.
