Ragbrai in Iowa-- lance will be here

Starting 22 July - 470 miles or so across the state in 7 days-- big rides during the day and the 3rd flattest course in history

some days might have 30 thousand riders

you can imagine the parties at night

most days probably 4-5 thousand

regards from Iowa


PS go to the Des Moines Register home page and look if you are interested

lots of people only do a day or two

I rode in Ragbrai I, but only for one day. Back then nobody had thought of Ragbrai as being a local fundraising opportunity and each town that we passed through provided FREE brownies and cold drinks.
