Eric, I’m not sure if the Wahoo Elmnt Bolt shows the elevation on the screen or not. I don’t pay attention the elevation so it might be there, but I don’t look at it. When I look at the stats after my ride the elevation is there. You can easily switch from one data field/stat up to nine very easily while riding by pushing a button. There are…[Read more]
I have the Wahoo Elmnt Bolt. I love it. Its easy to use and its also very easy to change how many stats you want to display at a time. It also has a feature that it will pause your ride once you slow down to a certain MPH (you chose how low). The feature comes in handy when your getting off your bike in the pass through towns so its not…[Read more]
Even with a staggered start, that pretty much gets thrown out the window when riders start stopping in the pass through towns. Unless you start giving people a time limit in the pass through towns and that would just be silly and not very Ragbrai-ish. All these are good ideas, but also create headaches for Ragbrai trying to enforce them or keep…[Read more]
I understand that. Heres another one… if they require the riders to get a test then what about the food vendors, merch vendors, the local people in the pass through/overnight towns, staff, etc. What would be the point of requiring it from riders but not from everyone else? Sounds like a huge headache than what its worth…
I think requiring a covid test would be a logistics nightmare. Thinking out loud here… but all the people who have registered… did it say anything about requiring a covid test when they registered? If it doesn’t say it now or when you register, how can Ragbrai go back and change the terms of what you registered for and require it? Lots of…[Read more]
Thanks for the info. I see where it says March 15th. I also see where they call it “this years race”. Which 1) it’s not a race and 2) There’s one month left in the year, so I doubt it’s held this year but hopefully it’s held in 2021 or next year.
Was curious if anyone has ordered anything from the online Ragbrai store recently? If so, how long did you have to wait before your items arrived? Anyone have any issues? I had a question about ordering and sent an email. Two weeks later and I’m still waiting for a response. Hoping they don’t treat the online orders the same way?
I would say on the bike is just as high of risk of transmission as standing in crowded lines, bars, etc. Thousands of people biking, breathing heavier and producing more droplets in what is basically one huge slip stream. Droplets from someone who has covid are going to travel further and to other people. Also, covid needs to be well under…[Read more]
I dont see Ragbrai happening as of right now. I do see a lot more smaller rides popping up in its place throughout next summer. I say smaller as in maybe a max of 500 people. Im keeping my fingers crossed Ragbrai happens. Even if Ragbrai does happen next year I think we are still 2 or 3 years away from Ragbrai being what we know and love.
