The discrepancie is probably due to where you camped. My wife camped by the pool and that added 3-4 miles the previous day and getting out the next day. I did reset my odometer as I passed where the vendors were and ended up almost to the dot.
What was the hardest climb of this years route in your opinion? What made it the hardest? Pitch? Length? Too early in the day or late in the route?

I really enjoyed The climb getting into Denison followed by the long downhill and then the climb into the city center. Also enjoyed the climb the next day getting…[Read more]
We started late on Saturday and stopped for a long lunch at the meeting town. That had us at Blue grass very late in the day. Once we got there they were literally giving everything away. My son and I got 2 free water bottles, 2 Gatorade and one mountain dew. We declined the chips and snacks being offered. All free and with the usual smile from…[Read more]

Can anyone share previous experiences with shower facilities at the main campground for register riders?
Is it free or should I expect to have to pay for a shower? I’m assuming there will be big lines as well.
I’m doing the RAGBRAi for the first time this year after coming for the last 4 years. I could never get time off work.
I’m doing it with my 15 year old son who will be turning 16 a couple of days after the end of the RAGBRAI and I’m turning the big four 0 on the second day (23rd).
Wife just found out she can get the week off and is willing to…[Read more]
We are a father and son also from Joliet. The original plan was to have my wife and daughter on a suport vehicle but I haven’t been able to secure a vehicle pass yet so I’m starting to look for alternatives.
When do you leave? What’s the cost and what additional services do you provide?
Let me know as we have to make plans very soon as the clock…[Read more]
