jwsknk: 227738 for my 34th, aren’t you glad they don’t do roman numerals for you band number? so it would make mine 23 M with a line over, then MMDCCXXXVIII I think. they didn’t have a letter for over 1000. or is that (((II)))((II))(VII)DCCXXXVIII?

You had to ask this didn’t you? After wasting some time researching Roman numerals online I come to the conclusion that we don’t seem to know how they handled numbers over a few thousand. People have theories, other people say those theories are wrong without offering alternatives. But surely they had to deal with large numbers in the occasional imperial census. Rome and Alexandria were both over 100,000 inhabitants and the whole empire a few tens of millions.

But I am a child of the 20th and now 21st century so I say lets ditch the Romans and go with hex. My wristband number for RAGBRAI 2C is 37DE5!

I’m in for my 33rd year out of the last 34 with the Skunks.
I’ll be sporting #227734, so if you see me, say hi.

Yaaah! I’m in, so psyched to ride my first Ragbrai.

I see what you did there, you made Roman numerals look like the reasonable choice!

RAGBRAI X for this young buck.

RAGBRAI Redux will be a little bittersweet. My RAGBRAI friends from last year won’t be joining me, but I am looking forward to meeting new ones.

(“640 riders should be enough for any event.”)

Riding unaffiliated this year, but riding I will be!

Met a very nice lady who rides with your team, on the Redbud Ride down here in Kentucky. Her name escapes me, of course. I’m in as well! See you out there in beautiful Iowa! Dave on Team Highlife.

Hmmm…I posted this in reply to TEAM HILLS ANGELS. Didn’t work.
