awsome ya’ll. i think i will try and have a good time, and not worry about the intangables. i mean i want to have fun and meet good folks!!or
but i want to have a good ride too. i think i will drink maybe 1 or in each town, and when i get to the last town before the over night town , then drink a few more.
i just watched a million spokes film on ragbrai. and it seemed like a lot of folks did not make the whole ride. they say they rode the whole thing,but the really did not cause they took the sag wagon on several days. i mean i just want to finish the ride without getting hung over and feeling bad.

hey bob, i dont want to pay the lottery draw fee. and i just don’t want to wade through all the gear and tents in the next town. i just want to get to the next town, and set up where i want to, and not have any problem finding my gear.another thing thats why i want to ride it un supported. no hassels
i bought me a new bike for ragbrai, trek fx. i can pull a trailer with it or use panniers front in back. or i can have just back saddele bags, and attatch sleeping bag and tent on top of rear bags. i have used this kind of set up before, but only for a over nighter. folks say trailers are a bitch going up hills. i would be using the cheap one…[Read more]
i was wondering which bike would be better for ragbrai. the hybrid or road bike. the road bike is faster, but when coming into towns the trek fx hybrid takes over on manuverabilaty. it is a much more agile bike in town.it is much more comfortable . i will be pulling a trailer to. so i think the hybrid is a better choice.tell me whay ya’ll think. thanks
i really don’t see the big deal here. who wants a pork chop while riding a bike. i mean carbs yes, beer yes, pies and deserts yes but a big peice of meat like that. i mean it sure looks good, but maybe after the bike ride yes!!!!! mr pork chop has made his way into ragbrai history. anyhow i will try one next year, only after the ride.
there’s no special remedy. just try to hydrate really well before nyou ride. some folks can’t take the heat. maybe your one of them. i know some folks change as they get older. they just can’t take the heat anymore. sorry it is what it is.
