Training for RAGBRAI!


Daughter, Ashley and I need to get really serious about RAGBRAI training. Of course she has age on her side and having been a cross country/track runner in high school helps also. I, on the other hand, have none of the above advantages which means I have to kick up my riding and training in the few short weeks remaining!

Today we rode a 42 mile loop, the wind was 22 mph NNW with gusts up to 26 mph. We were slow, but sure. It did feel mighty fine when we were riding south and east! Hopefully I'll get in some good mileage this week and start on some hill training.

thanks for the tips on pepper spray, been looking for a bike mount. In Okla. and finished our tour across Okla. Getting ready for Ragbrai, also need more training. I bought my first road bike just before my 50th birthday. Now 58 and enjoying it even more, helps keep a healthy body. See you at Ragbrai. Sandy B. in Oklahoma

Sandy, sounds like you are ready for RAGBRAI - you've already completed the tour across Oklahoma!
