I have the problem on one computer and not the other. Both have Microsoft Edge for the browser. I am not mentioning this to the IT guy, because RAGBRAI is probably the only non=medical site that is not blocked by our firewall.
Well my idea was that if you encouraged faster riders to start earlier and slower riders later it would string out the line more with resulting less congestion along the line, as the faster riders would not be catching up with slow groups as much, or at least bring congestion down at the breakfast stops. I do realize some slower riders need to…[Read more]
Minor correction. Those groups are not mutually exclusive. Some of the 24 million vaccinated people are in the 75 million that either had the virus asymptomatically or were not diagnosed. My experience in epidemiology tells me that correcting this for non-exclusivity would require a complicated formula that requires statistics, which I was…[Read more]
I don’t care if we have a long day, it will just make the next day shorter and it averages out for the most part. I kind of hope the longer days end in a larger town, as I like to eat at sit down places with flush toilets in the evening, especially after a long day. Seems like I sometimes end up eating standing up, or without a table on some…[Read more]
How about the first soda fountain? I am a specialist at finding them in time for my team to meet for Root Beer Floats at 4:00. Almost every town that we overnight at has one. Sigourney was an exception. Get the floats, take a shower, go out to eat, and then either lounge around or go to the entertainment. Great plan for any night on RAGBRAI.…[Read more]

I had an online denier inform me that my did not die of COVID last month, he died “with COVID” because he was a heart patient. What an idiot! He would still be alive if he had not contracted COVID. He’s dead, and…[Read more]
Whenever I wear my RAGBRAI jerseys on the Will county trail system in the southern suburbs, I always have at least one person tell me about the year they did RAGBRAI or how many years they have done it. One guy lived directly across the street from the house behind my house.
Yep. The variables are in the hundreds. Any effort put out at this point could be a total waste of resources. In the case of the events we do here, there is a point of no return, usually when significant deposits have to be put down on things like Kybos, and we work with the options we have at that time.
Let’s talk about on how the Cubs…[Read more]
Maybe someone has said this, but: instead of having a designated highly congested meeting town, spread the vendors out among three or four towns when possible. Or cut down on the commercial vendors and let the towns market what they have, thus spreading out the crowd. That would really give the towns a boost. Or spread the traveling vendors…[Read more]
