I would give our hosts money and more gifts to have us. I would hire a local and his/her vehicle to drive us to the downtown festivities and back. And I would pay for hotel rooms for the group to stay in in the last town. Otherwise, everything would be the same. Oh, and maybe massages for me and my fellow Black Fungus!
Where did you see Lance was going this year? You were probably looking on old stories. Registration hasn’t begun so how do they know? Chances of seeing him if he goes, are almost as high as winning the lottery. It’s your choice not to go but you are missing an awesome time. This will be my 21st.
TJ, if you are reading this, thanks for putting clues in the logo. It’s like trying to guess what is under the tree at Christmas! Of course we have to wait until the route announcement in January but it makes the waiting fun!
I had thought about hanging up my bike after RAGBRAI was over last July. 20 years is long enough I thought. Nope. I am…[Read more]
The 3 stars could mean the RAGBRAI #3 route – or start… Hawarden. I thought the XV in the barn doors might be RAGBRAI 15. That started in Onawa so probs not. 15 blades on the windmill? Again the number 15. The it’s going to be a breeze… Storm Lake and all the wind generators we see on that route. I haven’t researched famous barns in…[Read more]
I didn’t find any clues in last year’s logo. And I haven’t seen the clothes for this year’s logo! That gives me something to do this afternoon instead of watching football with my husband. LOL
I do have a question. My helmet is now five years old. Manufactures say to replace it after five years. Does everybody follow this rule?
The forum is always quiet after RAGBRAI is over for the year. Sad times but hey, today is 299 days until RAGBRAI 2019! Let’s get our chatter on!! Name one new item you plan to purchase for RAGBRAI 2019.
[quote quote=1294866]The rotation has seemed to be north, central, south so 2019 should be south.
Amanda, as for the 6 day original route for the 50th edition, I’d suggest to the route people 2 nights in 1 town with a loop route with 2-3 mileage options for the additional day. Maybe the century town being in Minnesota. Like the TdF dips into o…[Read more]
I heard an interesting “rumor” on the ride this year. The route for RAGBRAI 50th will be like the first year’s route. Start in Sioux City and end in Davenport. However the first RAGBRAI was only 6 days so not sure how that will work.
Just throwing it out there…
One more tip. Don’t set up on the left-hand side of the road. Set up on the right-hand side. Most bikers get off on the right side. Ride right rules say to get off on the right and not on the left. The left side is for the speedy guys! LOL
plus the main group will probably be done about 10:30. What I mean by that is there will be a steady s…[Read more]
That is a great idea to honor your friend. I would set up about a half a mile from the start of the Mile of Silence. Then you can tell your story to those who stop. Or you could hand them out to riders the night before.
Our team will be honoring a wonderful guy too. JD Hunt was a fantastic driver for us and just an all around great guy. Black…[Read more]
