It took 7 days and 430+ miles, but RAGBRAI was conquered. Overall, it was not too bad. The most challenging was Day #2. It consisted of 110 miles and 5900 feet of climbing. The rest of the ride was 50 to 64 miles daily. Met some incredibly nice folks after each of the rides. BTW, on Day 2 I saw Lance Armstrong's entourage go by me at blazing speed. Since I try to stay away from crowds, I left at 5:45 each day and tried not to stop until the end of the daily ride. Had some rhubarb pie, pork chop at 8:30 AM, great pulled pork, and super ribs. If you have not done it, put it in your ditty bag. It's well worth it. HOOAAA!!
