Nice, post a photo of what it looks like Iím curious if itís worth requesting. Meanwhile I just printed the PDF out on 8x10 paper and put it in one of those self laminating thingys you get from the store. Just peel it apart and put the paper in and press down. Thanks BobG

Iowa's Ride is just a weekend ride in Eldora IA.

RAGBRAI is a week long ride, but it goes W to E and ends in Clinton which is further up the Mississippi than you want to enter. Also, RAGBRAI sets its route for a mix of pass-thru towns so they are never the most efficient/direct routes.
