On Saturday I will officially earn the right to participate in this forum. And to celebrate my semi-century I will prove to myself that I am not yet old. I will be riding across Iowa in RAGBRAI next week for the very first time. I've got my 50+ jersey all packed, and plan to wear it on the last day for the picture of me dipping a tire in the Mississippi.
If you want to follow along, I plan to post daily updates on my blog (see my signature) and I created a site that will track my progress in real time: http://www.followbill.org
If you aren't familiar with RAGBRAI, it is a week-long ride across Iowa that covers about 450 miles. There are usually 10,000 participants!
I hope to see a few more 50+ jerseys out there next week.
