Thank you Air Force Team for your service and your unselfish help on RAGBRAI.
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 posting what percentage of the rider fees went to charities.
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.
The beer was great!!
I think you can purchase at the RAGBRAI tent and in the mornings at the baggage truck. I read that somewhere on RAGABRAI’s site.
I also read at the baggage truck in the morning between 6:30AM and 7:30AM
It gets in your blood. When I hear someone say they are not riding this year I wonder how they kicked the habit. There must be a new drug out there somewhere. My first was 1988…
On day one 2014 in Okoboji after a full day I was pooped and decided to stop at a Casey’s to grab some refreshment even though I only had a couple miles to go to camp. As I was pulling in an SUV came backing out at high speed. I only saw him for a second then I woke up in the ambulance. They life flighted me to South Dakota for some reason ( they should have sent me home-the opposite direction ). End of my hometown overnight in Mason City RAGBRAI! I was able to visit with my group when they made it Wednesday to Mason loaded with pain killers. My broken bloody helmet that I rarely wore saved me. I didn’t ride RAGBRAI the following year. But I’m back baby!
I would like to try the same!
Welcome! I will be listening for ukulele music! Enjoy!!
I see this is an old post but it caught my eye as a newly addicted Zwifter. Since the brutal cold started and the big snows that don’t get properly cleaned up I stopped commuting to work and needed some ride time somehow and discovered Zwift. I knew about it but I had no real interest until I became desperate. Now I can’t wait to get home to ride!
Down with rhubarb!!
I have a few bikes but the bike I enjoy the most and take on long rides is a mid-eighties Nishiki Cresta GT touring bike with transplanted 105 double with downtube shifters. I recently took off the 700x23c tires that I had on there for twenty years and replaced them with 32c and that made for a whole new comfortable ride. Long wheelbase, steel frame, very nice ride. If your looking for a 63cm bicycle I have too many…
