It was just announced here in Iowa that Lance Armstrong, now retired from cycling and the Tour de France, will be joining nearly 20k out of shape, pork loving, beer drinking, pie eating cyclists (and me and my buddy Gerard) on the annual RAGBRAI ride across Iowa. The newspaper has quoted him as a saying that he’s been longing to do this ride for a very long time. They’re keeping his exact days of participation under wraps for now but what a cool deal. This isn’t a race mind you. It’s a nice jaunt for some, a stretch for others, and likely a torturous decline into the bowels of hell for many. I’m not sure where I’ll fall in that mix, but I can say that "I rode with Lance" soon. Live Strong.
