    Route Announced for 2013 RAGBRAI (overnighting in Des Moines 07/23)

    The route for this year's RAGBRAI was announced today. It looks like an interesting route and it is always a good time when it stops in DM.

    RAGBRAI 2013: Short, south, through Des Moines | RAGBRAI

    It'd be awesome if Lance Armstrong rode this year and finished in the middle of the pack since he's off the juice.

    While I'm happy it's coming close to home for me, I'm not usually a fan of the larger overnight cities because things get so spread out and you lose the RAGBRAI atmosphere. That said, I think this will be a fun route which should allow plenty of time for off-bike activities.

    I may have to ride the first half this year. I missed last year, thankfully.

    Good route for DSM people to do CB to Knoxville and never be too far from home. 70% of Ragbrai'ers are from out of state? That must just be for the ones that actually register?

    I will probably do the perry -> DSM -> Knoxville and just spend the night at home. I guess I need to go buy a new bike now.

    I think this year is a reward for last year. Damn I love RAGBRAI!

    RAGBRAI 2013: Short, south, through Des Moines | RAGBRAI

    Pretty short segments...eh. Must be planning on another brutal summer. Nice pass through towns. HATE large towns like Des Moines for RAGBRAI...also includes Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, Ames, Cedar Falls, Waterloo, etc...Someone must like them though, so something for everyone I guess.

    Not sure about the new bike, but I'm thinking about doing the very same thing and am guessing we won't be alone with that 2-day ride idea.

    What is wrong with another one? Like a Trek 520 or Surly Trucker.

    2013 RAGBRAI Route

    Don't know how many other RAGBRAIers are on CF, but the 2013 route announcement was yesterday and I, for one, am pumped!

    July 20th: Council Bluffs
    July 21st: Harlan
    July 22nd: Perry
    July 23rd: Des Moines
    July 24th: Knoxville
    July 25th: Oskaloosa
    July 26th: Fairfield
    July 27th: Fort Madison

    This is the second shortest route in RAGBRAI history (406.6 miles) and it goes through DM, so I'm expecting to have a lot of new people riding this year.

    Other than the Council Bluffs - Harlan - Perry combo, it should be a realllllllllllllly flat RAGBRAI too.

    Hopefully I'll see some other CFers on the road this year!
