This was my second year riding RAGBRAI. I had a family member ride with me a couple of days and one of the first things I told him was it was on him to keep an eye on the other riders. Don’t assume they are keeping an eye on you.

I ride about 90% of the time on roads. No music most of the time but if I do have it it’s a small speaker. I ride with lights all the time. I’m at the point if I forget to put my mirror on I feel lost and have to stop to get it. Bright shirts and shorts. I haven’t had to many issues with drives being crazy. I did have a young girl come across the…[Read more]
