Any Central-Iowa people and/or Ragbrai Bicyclists Out There?

It's official. My little team got picked in the lottery for Ragbrai again this year (for the 2nd year). (Ragbrai=a week long bike ride across Iowa -- a mixture of a moving family reunion, county fair and frat party with 15,000 people -- yes, 15 THOUSAND). I CAN'T WAIT!

Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone else on MWK was going... or maybe lived somewhere along the route. The route this year sort-of hugs I-80. The Ravelry Biking group is considering a meet up some time... I thought it'd be fun to make sure there were men there if possible.

(Yep... I'm crazy. This is the kind of thing I would have never imagined doing a few years ago - I've NEVER been accused of being athletic! It's fun though!)

Let me know.

Grace and Peace,


Wow Tim, you're a wild and crazy guy! Out here we have the S-T-P, that's "Seattle to Portland" bike race. I considered the idea of doing it once, but came to my senses. I've done 7 marathons and 3 Hood-to-Coast relays, so after a while, enough is enough. I know what you mean about not being athletic. I can't even tell you how this happened. Fitness. It's almost as addicting as knitting.

a) Congrats of doing the RAGBRAI, I've been getting interested in the BRAG (Bicycle Ride Across Georgia) since I started biking last year, but I'm not ready for a week-long ride just yet! Maybe you could come here for teh BRAG next year? It's not as big as the RAGBRAI, but I understand it's fun We could knit in camp after a long day's ride...

b) I didn't know there was a Bike group on Ravelry!!! I'll join it when I get home!! (it' blocked at work--Big Brother dontcha know!)
