I often get asked the question: “How many miles should I train before the start of RAGBRAI?”. My answer is that you should have ridden at least 1,000 miles on your bike before you start RAGBRAI (this year, not in your whole life!).

Now that spring is reluctantly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere, the snow is melting and its now Daylight Savings Time, hopefully you are thinking about getting back out on your bike again, if you haven't already.

Seems like a large portion of the U.S. is covered in snow right now. If you are a RAGBRAI rider from one of the northern or eastern states and you are frustrated about not being able to do any riding, it may be helpful to know that you can get out and ride even when it's cold.

If you are like those of us here in Iowa, we are snowbound. According to the Groundhog, there will be six more weeks of winter. If that's all we have, I'll be happy. But that doesn't mean we put off getting ready for RAGBRAI.

The overnight towns for the 2010 RAGBRAI were announced. As you probably have heard by now, it’s being touted as one of the shortest and flattest RAGBRAI’s in history. So this means you don’t have to train, or at least train as much as last year, right? Think again.
