    100 Days Until Ragbrai

    Only 100 days until RAGBRAI! I only have about 20 miles in so far, how is everybody else doing?

    Got about 115 in so far. Wanted to get out this afternoon after work, but rain kind of put a damper on that...

    Makes ragbrai riders feel a little week when you consider the 4 guys running across the state in the next couple of days.

    Re: 100 Days Until Ragbrai

    I'm up to 1450 miles so far this year. Living in Texas makes it a little easier to ride some in the winter and early spring. And being an old retired guy makes it easier to find the time as well.

    Like last year I plan to have 3700 miles behind me by RAGBRAI. That's obviously plenty of miles but living in north Texas makes it difficult to replicate the Iowa hills.

    dude there was a guy that used to do Ragbrai non-stop, cathater in and everything.

    and I bet those runners don't have as much fun we'd drink 'em out of their new balances.

    Is there new kit?!? I've just ruined my beloved jersey in a bunch sprint crash, last weekend.

    I've got about 500-600 in so far. A colder and snowier than usual winter forced a late start for us out here on the East coast. Excited for RAGBRAI!!!

    Re: 100 Days Until Ragbrai

    Let's see 220 miles in so far.... Blew 3 tubes so far even after getting new tires. Have new sandals coming this week along with new clips.

    So far been on the Brr Ride... Fat Tire Rides and this weekend the Hair of the Dog Ride in Nw Iowa. Can't wait for some of the more fun rides.

    Also can't wait till Sauk Rail Trail is paved in Sac and Carroll county this summer. This is my 3rd year biking. Hit 1000 miles at the end of the year last year. Hope to have that by Ragbrai, and hoping to do all the ride.

    Also hoping to upgrade from my Trek 1.2 to something better but can't afford new.
