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.
