I would guess less than one hundred. I live a mile away so I couldn’t not go. When they asked for questions from the RAGBRAI peeps it was just crickets. It took a bit for people to speak up. The big issue in most people’s minds was the charity aspect. I’m not sure that we learned anything new on that point but Anne did say they would look into…[Read more]
The only thing I heard that was news to me was that TJ is limiting his ride to 5000. Also that next year who is to say they do something other that a cross state ride. That and meeting the new RAGBRAI director.

My first big bike ride was from Lawton to Cache on the old highway on a 20″ BMX bike, I guess I’m lucky to have survived with a narrow 70 MPH no shoulder road. I…[Read more]
I like that it is coming through Clear Lake again. I was excited when it was coming through Mason City in 2014 but I got hit by that pesky SUV and life flighted away. I haven’t ridden RAGBRAI since that happened but I will ride at least a couple days this year.
