Hi this was my first Ragbrai and I am already planning for next year. I saw a lot of accidents, I did not get hurt or got a flat tire, but I was wondering if anybody that did get hurt can provided some status, especially the lady that her her bike flip over while going downhill or the dad that was pulling a kid carrier and the carrier came loose…[Read more]
Hey KenH. I had my pills in my bag and I forgot to bring a couple with me. they should had ibuprofen in there, period. and where the heck I am going to find a Hy-vee store in mid route?
you said, you were driving the SAG van. what van. I saw plenty people waiting to be rescue. and in the whole week I only saw this van twice. this was my…[Read more]
I keep hearing about Iowa people are very nice. well that was not the case with me. I just kept encountering the wrong people all week long. the only people I really enjoyed the company was the Amish people. great personality, humble, and kind, and of course great pies, ice cream, honey and banana bread. sometime you roll into town and people…[Read more]
I am thinking that the sleeping bag is not going to be needed during those days. i figure if it is too hot at night plus humidity, you just need a light blanket and some long john should do the trick. I have seen previous temperatures from last years and I do not think a sleeping bag is required. I need more space in my bag to bring more thing.…[Read more]

why are you bringing an animal to this event. find a person or establishment to take care your pet while your gone, I never been at ragbrai, but i would not want a dog barking at night and keep half of the people up because a leaf felt from a tree. and the next morning everyone that was up, are paying the price pedaling 60 miles, and your dog…[Read more]
This is one question that no one has asked. I know that you can charge your phone and table and camera with charters(if you signed up for them) they have their own and fancy charging station, but what about the people that use the regular ragbrai truck to haul their stuff? where do they charge their phones, etc?
Hi. I am a 50 year old latin man that is going to this event. I am coming from the Twin Cities, and I hope I can be there Friday of Saturday before the expo. I would like to find someone that is new or have done this ride before and is going alone. Maybe we can team up and have fun together. It will be nice to go to concerts, grab a bite…[Read more]
The reason I asked the questions is because I am arriving on Friday the 19th and I need a place to camp, for two nights. Ragbrai said you can camp there.. but where.. does anyone know the street name where the expo is?
