Well my sister’s, cousin’s, nephew’s, grandmother’s- twice removed-, Auto Mechanic over heard a guy at the post office telling his wife’s, sister’s, dog she heard the same thing. But I don’t go around spreading rumors……….
I agree with Nico ZZZ. Don’t neglect the gym time. Squats, deadlifts, lunges and core work. There is a girl in our group who has maybe 100 miles in every year but is in great shape from Cross-fit. Kills all of us on the hills. The only problem she has is that her butt gets a little sore. (BIOTCH)!!! :) :)
The first 3 days last year was a true test and then followed up by the Karras Loop on day 4. This years route seems easy on paper but hills are hills, miles are miles and heat is heat. With that said I hear my bike calling me and the gym just emailed me that tomorrow is leg day….
I remember reading the forums before last years RAGBRAI about drinking pickle juice and thinking GROSS!! Then on the 1st day there were actualy vendors on the side of the road selling pickles and pickle juice. I chuckled to myself until 5 miles from the first overnight town I bonked.

2016 RAGBRAI was my first and won’t be my last. Nothing could have prepaird me for the experiece except for the experience itself. Experiencing all different people, their stories, where they have come from and why they are there was amazing.

I do do some core training but not as much as i should. Yes this is my first RAGBRAI and I’m really excited. I am afraid of the heat. Yesterday it was 90 here but felt like 100 due to the humidity. At the end of my ride i was toast. Hope to meet you and some of the other riders that have posted here. Im using PBV this year.
You’re a Salty little fucker aren’t you!! You don’t know me or anything about me. Did the kids at school not let you play with them at recess?? I bet you were the bully that got his ass kicked. So sad that your ego is so small probably like your dick. I can tell you’re a real ass!! GO FUCK YOURSELF!!!!
