Ragbrai is not a race but a bike ride across Iowa, so there were no awards for winning. All who went on Ragbrai whether for a few hours or for the entire week are winners for taking part in this athletic and wonderful ride.
This may be a difficult question to answer depending on conditions, however what is the optimum speed one is traveling while training and/or on Ragbrai to get from start to finish on a given day? Right now my training speed is about 14 mph. Should I be pushing for a faster time speed to better prepare for the ride?
