RAGBRAI LI Route Announced on Jan. 27!

What would you like to see more of on RAGBRAI that seems to be missing?

Personally, I’d like to see more fresh fruit and veggies on RAGBRAI. Also some more beverage selections: homemade root beer, ginger ale, that sort of thing for us nondrinkers in the crowd.

What would you like to see?

I found a stand outside of Grinnell last year that had fresh peaches. They were excellant.

Michrider! He claims to be on every curb or under every tent with a beer, but no one has ever seen him.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen that. I thought it had become a myth.

More local entertainment. The ride is supposed to be promoting Iowa, and it’s a fact that Iowa has talent too. Big-name bands are nice, but do we really need them?

Although if Jimmy Buffett would happen to drop in and play for a hour or two, I will be glad to consider him an honorary Iowan…..

I would like to see bagels, cold cut wraps, fruit. I am always in search of healthy foods, not fried.

K&K bagels, although it is only one of the K’s now with someone else. usually set up by a coffee vendor.

We need a good, really good coffee vendor about 10 or so miles into the route. Kinda like the “Free Trade Coffee” Hippies!!!!!!!

Coffee vendor at the campground! There was one in 2004 and we hit it every morning. In 2008 when we returned there was nothing so we got in the habit of buying bottles of Starbucks at the convenient store the night before. Needless to say we got going much easier and earlier when the hot coffee was right there next to the kybos.

I’m a big tomato fan. In either 2004 or 2006, forget which, at a country church, there was a stand selling tomato’s that were cooled in a tub of ice water. Man, those were good. They had already sold out of the “large” when I got there, so had to make do with two “smalls”. I’m sure it would be a hit!

Mich – did any pictures of you make it into the 2011 PBV video? If so, how many minutes into the video?
