RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa) is happening this year between July 22-July 28, 2007. Here’s my chronicle of last year’s incredible experience.
Lance Armstrong said last year that he’d do the entire ride this year which should bring about quite the buzz. I’m totally into riding again this year…but I’m a guy that likes to ride with friends so I’m putting the call out now to anyone interested. I may do the entire ride if enough people come along with me. We’ll get a motor home and do this right! If we’re just doing a few days, we’ll probably do 2 or 3 days that are closest to the house. Based on the route history, I think we’re looking at a southern route this year. I’m really hoping that we’ll pass right by an ethanol plant and get a tour. You still have 205 days left to train as of this posting too.
I’m willing to coordinate logistics for those coming from out of town, etc.
I just found this site called GeoBike. I haven’t gotten this to work yet…but you can review the rides and routes of the past using google earth. This looks fun.
