    Watch RAGBRAI roll into Ames live!

    Here is the link of riders rolling into Ames already this early in the morning. They must be booking it already cause when I did RAGBRAI 7 years ago we averaged 12-14 miles per hour and this ride is what 50-60 miles? Anyways, here is the link.

    Re: Watch RAGBRAI roll into Ames live!

    Just note that it's delayed a few seconds. Figured that out earlier when I was watching online and then looked out my window. Lots of noise so far right here at the official welcome area to Ames and ISU. I'm going to "help" with traffic and questions this afternoon.

    Re: Watch RAGBRAI roll into Ames live!

    Part of me would almost think about boycotting RAGBRAI this year, considering 1. it's the RAG's event, and 2. they think it's worth more media coverage than other events that are currently occurring around the state...

    I don't know, I think it is worth the coverage it is getting. It's a BIG event and probably has a pretty decent economic impact on each small town it passes through.

    Re: Watch RAGBRAI roll into Ames live!

    It's inbetween kildee and some other building on Stange road I believe. This road is generally road blocked with cement baricades and bunch of bikes park there.

    The camera is set up on the west side of Kildee Hall, directly across from Lagomarcino Hall. it's next to the curb, pointing north. The intersection you see in the background is Stange and Pammel Drive.

    They're riding through a Welcome Arch.

    Just saw Jamie Pollard ride by. It was nice to see him decked out in ISU stuff. Anyone know if/when lance is coming to Ames? I heard he was riding out of here is that true?

    Re: Watch RAGBRAI roll into Ames live!

    I had several invites to ride RAGBRAI this year but because I thought my move would conflict I declined. One invite was even from a former Hawkeye wrestler!

    If there is any consolation I have ridden RAGBRAI three different years and I'll be taking part in tour de Steamboat this Saturday (a 110 mile ride through the Rockies).
