If someone still needs to register day passes are available through June 1st. In the past you could purchase up to 6. If you want all 7 just create a 2nd ID for the rider and register that one separately. In years past you could purchase them at the RAGBRAI expo also although I saw no mention of that this year.
TJ had said they have some anti-spam software that was doing a pretty good job despite a few IDs that beak through. They usually then delete that account. Not sure who watches for those currently. There were a couple of those recently, 9centschange, livep2plive, charmstiffany.
Maybe someone from RAGBRAI could delete those ID???
Check out the charters maybe since they make logistics simple. Personal follow vehicles are not allowed other then those with a permit from RAGBRAI. Just park your car in the end town and put your luggage, bike on thier trucks and take the bus to the start.
Try checking out the charters. Depending on the level of support wanted prices vary a bunch. PBV offers lots of in-camp features that are optional at extra cost but they have a common area with shade tents, music and beverages to all. The tent service is nice since it also includes delivery and pick-up of your luggage each day without having to…[Read more]
NYChw, There was recent study that showed near zero risk of spread at outdoor events. Specifically there were looking at those mass gatherings in near and in water. Not sure if RAGBRAI officials will read that study but people should feel safe outdoors. Not sure where you got the idea that one rider can “mist” another when riding in front of them…[Read more]
So 7,000+ pirates. I’ve heard estimates as high as 20,000 for a day. You’d think RAGBRAI would forget about the limit and get as many to pay as possible but I’m not sure how many pirates would pay if they expanded the cap. Sounds like the Trooper might have would up with carpal tunnel.
I thought I read an official statement before the registration deadline was extended that they already had 10,000+ registrations which is the limit. Why extend it then? Seems counter intuitive. Unless registration was actually down this year.
Anna, I think you need to experience RAGBRAI to appreciate the vastly different environments and what my actual meaning is. Mostly outdoors, even in the beer gardens. Unlike in an air conditioned hospital and in particular how chilly the operating rooms are, RAGBRAI is out in the heat, humidity, pollen, dust and other asthma triggers in the wider…[Read more]
Peter is saying the person will work 1-2 entire days skipping the ride. I assumed they would ride some type of group or team transport during that time which rules out a fixed location. They could use the mobile hotspot on their phone to connect also but really their employer should pay for a mobile network device if they want them to work. Most…[Read more]
Anna, so you basically agree, these are surgical masks and while standing still operating they are fine. For medical people standing still over a patient for the purpose of not infecting the patient. But they were not intended for a body in motion. Keep in mind once someone is even walking our O2 needs vary a great deal from person to person. The…[Read more]
It sounds like they don’t have a network device from their employer to provide their own connection. Now would be a good time for them to ask their employer about getting one. I had a Verizon Jetpack from my employer. Then they could work from the team support vehicle (bus, RV, etc.).
Ken is right about the gasses escaping around the edges. Most masks were designed for surgeons standing still while operating on a patient to prevent their own droplets from falling into the patient’s open surgical wound and infecting the patient. Even walking I breath more then standing still and vapor laden air both escapes and is brought in.…[Read more]
Pork Belly offers charters in both directions also. Most leave their car in Clinton and take the charter back to the start on the front end of RAGBRAI. It saves time at the end of RAGBRAI traveling back to the start town for your car. They also haul your bike. Check out the service at: pkbelly.com. Its offered to riders who use their services…[Read more]
