I'm stoked -- my fair city is one of the overnight towns this year, and I just signed up. In prior years, I haven't done nearly enough training miles to prepare me for a 450-500 mile ride, and now that I commute on a semi-regular basis, I expect it will be a lot easier to just cruise and enjoy the attractions.
Who else is going?

i'll be there. this will be my fifth year on RAGBRAI. hopefully the weather isn't as oppressive this year. the insane humidity really drained a lot of the fun out of the week last year. but, regardless, a week solid on the bicycle is great regardless of conditions.
