Lower back problems are preventing me to go this year.
I have a week-long complete packet for $150, and a week-long OOS charter spot including transport from Davenport to Sioux City after the ride for $300.
A license plate comes in your packet, but the lettering has to be a bit small.
By the time you are close enough to read it you’d better introduce yourself.
So, your home made tag may be better.
I found bike “license plates” on the internet. Mine looks like a small Nevada auto plate that has my name instead of numbers. I think it cost…[Read more]
Sorry to hear you were alone with so many people around you. I can’t offer to join you this year, but I have a suggestion or two.
An advantage of going with a charter is that I have met several people under the canopies after the daily ride. It’s a great place to talk about happenings of the day. I have met several people that way who later…[Read more]
I got my packet this past Monday. (26th) I don’t know if it makes a difference, but I registered November 21st.
Since my last name starts with W, I assume Ragbrai is not using the alphabet for their mailings.
The guy i am bringing still has not received his. His name starts with K.
I think it is first come first served.
Is 108th st. the official route? I can imagine 116th st. could be closed right near the bridge repair. However, using Ride With GPS shows .3 miles less gravel by taking the 116th and getting back on F48 before we get to Colfax. For me, the less gravel the better. When will we get official word?
I start with about $200 in cash, but I try to keep about $60 in small bills on me each day. The rest I pack in my bags for the next few days. When that runs low I visit an ATM to re-supply. I think that the ATM’s at Casey’s and Kum & Go do not charge a fee for my credit union card. You would have to check your own bank network.
It looks, to me, that the only two mile gravel detour of the bridge repair would be to take the S 44th Ave W for a mile, and then go north on the W 116th S. 44th Ave goes across another bridge, then the 116th parallels the stream.
Hopefully they will have a path through a dry river bed adjacent to the bridge repair like they did last year.
