RAGBRAI Information Meeting

RAGBRAI Informational Meeting

RAGBRAI is an annual seven-day bike ride across Iowa and will begin July 22 and end July 28 this year. We will ride along with about 10,000 riders and typically cover about 65 miles a day. We are hoping to put together a Hightailer team to make it easier for an individual to ride and will have an informational meeting Friday night at 6:30 in the MHBC Education Center.

Having ridden RAGBRAI one time, I can attest that the real prize for the trip is not just the sweet miles, it is the experience of riding and living with people from all over the world while enjoying the wonderful folks in Iowa. The roads are essentially closed for twelve hours while a constant stream of cyclists wind their way through the small towns eating and drinking all the way. A bike expo kicks it all off and travels with the hoard. Getting there is easy but making all the arrangements is a puzzle. If you are interested please come for the presentation and bring all your questions. One thing…pace is NOT important. You will always be with someone to ride with. Some get in a 50 person pace line in the mid 20’s and some take big slow bikes, their tents and the kitchen sink. It is all about hitting your RAGBRAI rhythm. 

PS- Iowa ain't flat!
