“If nothing else is possible then the ISP or even the state legislature could force the two rides to share the same route and towns if they insist on running the same week. That would make the split palatable to everyone and indeed would make it almost transparent to most of us.”
Yikes. When the state legislature tells me where and when I can…[Read more]
LOL…liberals venting because they cannot control the narrative. Just go ride your corporate ride if that’s what you want to do. If Bernie could get on a bike, he’d be riding Iowa’s ride. This isn’t about politics to us…only to you. If anyone’s making this about politics, it’s you. All smiles over on the Iowa’s Ride page. All bitterness…[Read more]
Why are all you RAGBRAIers so butt hurt about a new ride? Is it because Gannett’s ride is falling apart? Here’s a thought. You want to ride Gannett’s ride, ride it. Maybe they’ll have it. Word is that they don’t have a director or marketing staff, but hey there’s still time. Gannett does such an awesome job of managing its newspaper…[Read more]

Nobody’s going to sue anybody here, unless the Register and Gannett want to double down on stupid. Read the comments. Your side has squandered so much goodwill. Read the positivity on the new ride’s board. Read the bitterness on the RAGBRAI board. Please, ride RAGBRAI. We’re going to be having fun on Iowa’s ride. You can be bitter with…[Read more]
