Today a 36 six year old tradition began.
One of my life goals is to be able to ride RAGBRAI
RAGBRAI is a bike ride across Iowa.
The ride started in 1973 by two riders and today almost 10,000 people ride across my home state of Iowa in the annual RAGBRAI ride across Iowa..
The RAGBRAI route averages 472 miles and is not necessarily flat. It begins somewhere along Iowa’s western border on the Missouri River and ends along the eastern border on the Mississippi River.
It is a week long ride across the corn feilds of IOWA.
I will start now to make preparations for the 2009 ride across Iowa
Next year’s RAGBRAI is July 19 – 25, 2009 – RAGBRAI XXXVI.
I will update you on my progress and trainning for the ride throughout this next year.

Your Mom sent us your blog site and Virg and I have been enjoying the read! We just got off of RAGBRAI yesteday! We’ve done it for 4 years now and it’s quite an experience! Let us know if you are really interested for 2009 and you could join up with our team if you’d like. We can give you additional details by email or phone call.
