So the RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, for the uninitiated) map is out for this summer, and it's about as easy a trip as we can hope for. I'm doing the full route this year for the first time, and I have already been working on some accommodations and transportation logistics, but a certain critical mass makes these things easier.
So, is there any interest in a BHGP RAGBRAI team? We could pool resources to move camping gear and beverages from town to town (and we can probably talk someone into driving the van, while we're at it) and locate and procure lodging. We can probably even get custom jerseys or something. I'm thinking they'll have nyan cat on them. Probably nyan cat.
Anyway, if you're interested, reply below and, if we get 15 or so who want to go, we'll start setting it up.
Also, if anyone knows of a good 1-2 day weekend ride around the Midwest, drop me a line at hawkeyestatebhgp at gmail dot com.
