The President, just minutes ago, announced that we will now have enough vaccine for EVERY adult in the country by the end of May, nearly two months before RAGBRAI. Get ready people, we are riding this year!
My significant issues, while much better the last 2-3 days, were all on a Chrome browser as well. Just in case any of the RAGBRAI folks are watching this thread, it sure appears to be a compatibility issue with Chrome but again, much better the last couple days.
Anybody here why Storm Lake backed out? I too am disappointed. I really thought Storm Lake sounded like a great overnight town and I had a room booked at Kings Pointe resort right next to all the entertainment, camping, etc. Oh well, next time I guess 🙂
Anyone hear anything on PBV’s fall ride they had talked about at Carstens farm? I sent Pete a note a while back and he said they were still planning on it. But, I have seen or heard nothing. Just want to be sure I didn’t miss an update or something. Anyone heard anything, one way or the other?
I think it was March when I first brought up RAGBRAI 2021 being at risk. It seemed outlandish to some at the time. Sadly, I think there is no better than a 50/50 chance there is a RAGBRAI next year. God I hope it “ain’t so” but it would not surprise me one bit if we don’t ride again until 2022.
Interesting and great point on the Bacoon ride. One day of this brewery hopping ride is already done, planned out, entertainment booked, camping available, etc. Just bookend the Bacoon with a ride on Friday maybe on the High Trestle and Sunday in and around DSM and you will have had a very fun three days. This is definitely doable. You could even…[Read more]
I dont have a route or plan but it sure sounds like an interesting idea, one I would enjoy. It is certainly doable and you could do much of it on some great trails as well. One day on the Raccoon River trail, one day on the High Trestle trail and one day in and around DSM with a quick run down to Cumming. All based in or around DSM somewhere. Good…[Read more]
I think you are about dead on for RAGBRAI next year at 50 / 50 odds. That in and of itself is rather sad but it is what it is. Only time will tell at this point. I sure hope a vaccine can be drastically accelerated and produced in large quantities or one hell of a sure fire treatment is proven out quickly so we can ride next year. Stay safe…[Read more]
When the Iowa State Fair announces its cancellation, it will truly be like the summer that never happened in Iowa 🙁 Now, lets all hope like heck a vaccine or effective treatment is unveiled before about this time next year or we will be taking bets on 2021 RAGBRAI being cancelled too. An all around sad situation for sure.
