At least one regular Bleeding Heartland reader is going on the Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa next week. Surely there will be a few more Bleeding Heartland users among the 10,000 intrepid riders.
This is an open thread for those planning to ride to make contact with each other. Maybe you can meet for a drink or some ice cream in one of the stopover towns.
I've never done RAGBRAI. Someday when my kids are old enough to do the ride, I'll consider it if they are interested. I think I'd enjoy the exercise, and I know I'd enjoy the camaraderie, but frankly, I am not crazy about camping out.
I’d appreciate it if someone who does RAGBRAI would post a diary here afterwards about the visibility of various candidates (road signs, volunteers, etc.) along the way.
