    Ames?

    Re: RAGBRAI Route Announced

    what year was it when we rode right along the Mizzou border? Like 4 years ago-ish ... that was a hilly-*****. My knee's still remind me of that route.

    Last few years have been a cake-walk, maybe they want to thin the herd?

    I think it lacks a clear party town for an overnight stop, or at least access to one nearby.

    While all towns are fun in their own right. Some are better than others. See Ames last year for example.

    Ottumwa??
    Might need red-cross to treat people after they leave that down for all sorts of stuff

    Oh, and if you are riding through Ottumwa for RAGBRAI...watch out for Hogs! The last time we went to Ottumwa we were on a 4 lane in town and someone hit a hog in the middle of the road...and it wasn't a little pip-squeek hog...it was a big ol' one and it was drooling out the mouth. Pretty funny

    Other than that...as someone else mentioned, it lacks that big-time overnight town

    Ottumwa's not much different than anywhere else but stay out of the strip club downtown, it ain't pretty.

    Re: RAGBRAI Route Announced

    Is anybody putting a team together? Possibly a Cyclone Fanatic team? This will be the 1st year my wife and I ride and currently it is just us two. PM if so! Thanks.

    Re: RAGBRAI Route Announced

    Not sure what this "big town" you guys are looking for? I've ridden the last 8 RAGBRAIs ... there's just not many "big" towns in Iowa. This route is pretty much like every other route in terms of town size, a few decently big, a few pretty small.

    Re: RAGBRAI Route Announced

    Glad to see others share my thoughts on SCottUMwa. I'd love to go with a Cyclone Fanatic team...however, I don't think I will be able to go at all this year.
