Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later.
After several years (like, maybe 15?) of whining, pleading, and sweet-talking from the hubby, I caved. He's long been a huge fan of RAGBRAI, and has ridden this week-long bike ride many times...and I finally agreed to ride Day-1 of the 2021 event.
I would be "On-Your-Left'ing" with the best of them...
Ever heard of RAGBRAI? Most anyone whose ever saddled-up a bike has heard the name...and now I can officially say I've experienced it, first-hand.
RAGBRAI, , is an annual seven-day bicycle ride across the state. Heading into its 48th year, RAGBRAI is the oldest, largest and longest recreational bicycle touring event in the world. For those of you who have never ridden, this rolling celebration of Iowa attracts participants from all 50 states and many foreign countries. It has covered thousands of miles through the years, and hundreds of thousands of riders have hopped in the saddle to pedal part of those miles.
