RAGBRAI is a family tradation, to ride across the state of Iowa on a bike. Averaging over 500 miles, over 6 days, equaling a once in a lifetime experience. Too bad I have participated in five of them.

This year my family and I will participate in the 36th running of the Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa.

Each day I will recap the ride with a blog post including the days route, my time in the saddle, interesting incidents, and photos.
