I’m glad I’m not the only one that was annoyed with that. I don’t mind the long day and I did the gravel(sand pit) on day 1 but there was no need to force us through that vendor gauntlet. It could not be ridden through so I was just hobbling through gravel in uncomfortable shoes when I wanted to be riding.
I rode my first Ragbrai at age 12. He’ll be fine if he likes riding. Based on his merit badge I’d say he’s good to go. From my experience the younger riders don’t suffer those couple of bad days as much. They tend to recover more overnight than older folks. Good luck and have fun.
Has anybody else received a message like this to their Ragbrai profile?
