Check out the videos on youtube on proper chain lube application. The goal is to lube the roller cams and not the outside of the chain or the cogs, chainrings. I use prolink and wipe all the lube off the outside of the chain and drive train. Stays quit and dirt free. Like the video says.
Yawn…. I’d be more apt to ride the yet to be named ride, the p-b-v signature ride Sept 18 – 20 that camps in 1 place and has 2 loop rides each day (real not virtual). 1 paved and 1 gravel loop each day but you can do both.
TJ did great things for RAGBRAI and I wish him luck. It was a troubled ending though.
That aside I doubt IR will actually ever happen unless they try and be something different then RAGBRAI. I’d suggest a route that begins and ends in the same place to simplify rider logistics. And coordinate a little with RAGBRAI by 1) ending on the Friday…[Read more]
Interesting new information. The media has of course referenced the states with increasing positive tests usually without even a passing nod to the fact that the states are all testing more. If you test more people in a week of course you’ll find more cases. The media now calls all increases “spikes”. Sounds more dramatic.
I have a route out of La Crosse’s Myrick park loosely based on the LAX Wheelmen’s Killer Hill route. Climb’s up past Grand-dad bluff on County F to FO to OA into Barre Mill. Then a loop that includes West Salem and Bangor and points north. I can post the details if you want or track down the map and my old laption
Forgot to mention the Twin Cities has more paved trails then you could explore in a week. Especially nice from the far NE metro, just inside I-694 on the south frontage road along hwy 36 is the Gateway trail. And take the Browns Creek trail where the trails spit into Stillwater. Great restaurants but The Freight-House has the best outdoor…[Read more]
The Root River trails are great. Paved with little towns to stop at. Lanesboro makes a nice hub town. Elroy Sparta was nice many years ago when it was crushed stone but most of that was washed away and now it’s hard dirt when dry. Nice railroad tunnels but you’ll need a flashlight. Walk them to be safe. Another add on option are the Iowa…[Read more]
We get what you are claiming Bubba but it is not relevant and we don’t agree. When a circumstance not referenced in the contract (RAGBRAI canceled) causes the contract to be un-executable, the entire contract is voided with neither party being to blame. When that happens EVERYONE goes back to the state when the contract didn’t exist. So Bubba’s do…[Read more]
Bubba is actually getting his own cancellation policy wrong. He states he keeps $300 if the RIDER cancels before May 20th. Obviously the riders did not cancel. Nothing in any charters contract addresses what happens if RAGBRAI is cancelled. And if you think just changing 48 to next year when RAGBRAI was going to happen anyway gives him an out you…[Read more]
That was if you cancelled the contract, not if Bubba cancelled and refuses to honor his end. Legally he has to return 100% of the money but it is not worth suing over the amount. Make sure your clear on that point with Bubba. He has to return 100% because he cancelled.
The Bacoon is run by a different organization (IBC) and they will make their own call. A 1 day ride with far fewer riders is not as challenging to cancel or postpone. The same group runs the Pigtails ride which they postponed until August 8th. I’d guess the Bacoon faces a postponement but not an out right cancellation also. Just watch their FB…[Read more]
That policy is if you cancel, not if RAGBRAI & Bubba cancel. I’d think Bubba would have to return most if not all the fees since very little in the way of expenses on Bubba’s end would still need to be spent. I know PBV’s default on cancelling is a 90% refund if cancelling by June 15th. So PBV people will get at least that much back. The same…[Read more]
