Greetings from chilly souther Iowa. I'm a 61 year young biker. Been turning the pedals all my adult life. Getting into self contained touring the past couple of years. My biking buddy of 30 years and I will do a nice one this July. Starting in Green River Utah on July 2 and ending in Rock Rapids, Iowa on July 21 where we will hook up with the RAGBRAI crowd (www.ragbrai.com). Will do RAGBRAI, finish in Bellevue, Iowa and return home from Bellevue by car. Total miles will be about 1,950. Can't wait to get started!!!
