I received information this week from the Bicyclists of Iowa City (BIC). They are the club I joined to avoid the lottery. It had my instructions for RAGBRAI.

The first paragraph of the letter read in part…

“We have a group of just over 150 riders signed up to ride across the state with BIC this year. Friends will join us from all over the country – 18 states, plus one Canadian. About 1/3 are female, 2/3 male, with a nice mix of different ages and several parent/teen set.”

While BIC will be transporting my stuff from one overnight town to another and I will be camping in the same area of these 150 riders, I will not be actually riding with this group.  In fact once the wheels start turning in the morning even the parent/teen sets might not be riding together. It is a free for all on the road.

Ride Right!
