RAGBRAI - July Ride (1 Viewer)

It just occurred to me that not a lot of people outside Iowa probably know about RAGBRAI. It's a bicycle event where you ride across Iowa. I've never personally made the ride, but have hosted riders coming through my town in the past. The route changes every year. I've always heard that it's a great experience. It costs some $ to register, but seems to me that someone could just blend in because there's usually a LOT of riders.

Here's the website for anyone interested:


(I realize this post could have gone in the Events section, but since it is a bicycle thing, I figured this would be as good of a spot. Apologies if it needs to be in Events and feel free to delete this parentheses section)

Nice post. I live in Omaha and ragbrai is a big thing in the summer. But it does get a ton of people participating from all over the us. The parties in all the small cities along the route are always fun. It is a one way ride, so most who do it have someone driving a support vehicle. Fun time for sure.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
