I agree with Uncle Kraig. So if you go just for the announcement and the party, it probably won’t be a surprise. The last one I went to, we sat at a table with a team we didn’t know. 10 minutes before the announcement, a person came up to the table and said to his friends here’s the route. I will say it was a let down. The anticipation of the…[Read more]
You will probably hear this a lot so I will start it. It’s not a race, it’s a ride. If you want to race, this is the wrong ride for you. You can ride as fast as you want but there is no trophy at the end. Just the sheer joy of achieving your goal. As for parking. They have week long parking at the start town and the end town. Some charters will…[Read more]
I need a refresher course in uploading photos to the forum. I think I need to have a site where my photos are stored and get a code there. I don’t remember what site I stored them on! OH dear! I guess I need instructions and a few suggestions where you all store your photos. It might jog my memory!
Amen KenH! I agree 1000%- never was good in math, but you get my drift. I love the opportunity to get off my bike and look at the each town. You never know what you might miss! And to restate what Ken said – Yes you can do RAGBRAI the way you want but there are times when you should want to give back to Iowa the same consideration that they have…[Read more]
I am feeling better! Thanks for all the get well comments. The worst part of this whole COVID thing: The royal family added a prince. Our first grandson was born on August 7th and I can’t hold or see him yet. SO sad. But soon I will hold him. I guess I have waited a long time for this guy a week or two shouldn’t matter. :(
Not sure where I would’ve picked it up. Yes, I was vaccinated in March. I was feeling quite confident that I wouldn’t get Covid. But apparently that Covid bug decided to get me anyway. It’s kicking my butt but nothing too severe. Just mainly tired, terrible cough and achy.
I bring a pair of thick socks to wear at night. I hate cold feet!! This year I am bringing a lt weight sleeping bag and sheets. I will sleep on top of the sleeping bag with the sheets if it’s too hot!.
The Princess has been busy – new puppy, painting at my son and daughter in law’s, first grandchild on the way, working from home, trying to get in miles on bike and a quick trip to Urgent Care to get 3 stitches in my little finger! Puppy and I are trying to learn stay down….
But yes, everyone needs to show each other respect. Ebikes, road…[Read more]
