It should be pretty easy with a little pre-planning. Contact the overnight towns and they should be able to help you. You’ll need to tap into a hard line as cell phone are useless during most of the ride. Too many phones crush the systems in rural areas (no matter how much they tell you they do things to fix the problem). Texting works well.…[Read more]
I think it will be lighter than normal because we are getting older and in trying to Destroy President Trump, the propaganda media did a really good job of terrifying everyone. Now we have a President trying to keep his dark winter going in their efforts to get as many people on the government dole as possible. Sorry you fell for it. If you…[Read more]
2006 Trek 1000C. The only original part left is the handlebars. Now running an oval 2×11 with a rack and probably a pannier for Ragbrai. I normally have a stereo on the back, but have opted for a 12 pack cooler for Ragbrai. We have enough people with stereos I’ve never used it when I brought it.
I seem to be a leper here now. Does anything work? Does anyone from Ragbrai reply to any questions sent to “contact us”? Am I registered or not? Is there a problem? Why can’t I see anything? What do we do if my Ragbrai account uses an email address that is no longer valid but you are not allowed to change your email address? What do you do…[Read more]
Joseph S. The exact reason why I was with TJ on getting Ragbrai away from them. Enjoy your fake news. Stay locked up in your basement until Fuhrer Biden tells you it’s safe to come out. I heard sometime in 2024. Meanwhile I’ll be having fun riding around Iowa.
My legs are trashed but still move in a little circle OK. Since I quit running in 1997, I started cycling for my cardio. I would love to say weight loss, but cycling seems to do next to nothing for me in that regard. Almost strictly diet for me.
I ride some to be social and some to be alone. Outside of tailgating for football, I’ll drink more…[Read more]
I think Iowa’s ride will go off in some fashion as long as Ragbrai is a go. I think Ragbrai will be a go because biker’s and pass thru towns will be demanding it by then. Either way, I’m sure I’ll be biking around some part of Iowa that week just like we did this year. But first, BRR registration opens Oct 31.
I thought about it when I lived in the mountains. The street I lived on was 18 degrees and I would have brake fade by the time I got to the bottom. Even then, I couldn’t justify pulling the trigger. I think the times I would benefit would be too few and far between. With that said, the correct number of bikes is N + 1 so I’ll never say never.
Riding in the middle of nowhere was a farmhouse. There was a sign that said “free water, pet the dog 10 cents” I pull up and the lady has a garden hose. A yellow lab comes trotting out from behind the house. I asked her where her donation box was for petty the dog? She said that it was just for fun. I explained that she didn’t understand the…[Read more]
Another reason to love PBV (I thought this is what this thread was going to be at first)
