Thanks TJ for writing us. I appreciate all that you had to say. I also appreciate everything you and your team do to make RAGBRAI the wonderful event that it is. I got hit riding my bike 4 weeks ago and may have to take a pass on the next one. Going to miss it and all you folks that are there.
Colorado’s Pedal the Plains Ride coned off a lane (sometimes just a shoulder) on a 20+ mile section of the ride on US 34. It made that part of the ride much less stressful.

Lost my wallet containing drivers license, medical insurance card, two credit cards and $30. It is black, and is the size of a pock business card case. Was lost near the yellow house at Diagonal and Platte. Please contact me at email@example.com if found. Thanks!
I’ve listened to each episode. Not quite what I thought but it has been good to keep me inspired. I too am looking forward to my first RAGBRAI. I enjoy the weekly ride info segment although I live out of state. Had no idea about some of the rides around Des Moines. Want to ride the High Tressle Trail someday. Parrot Talk is good too.

I’m looking forward to my first RAGBRAI this year (last year I wrecked before I could get to Iowa) and I’ve been thinking about the idea a few days along the river. From your experiences, would either of these be feasible? Is a safe routing to get to Muscatine by Thursday night available?
