As you know from a few posts ago, RAGBRAI was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19. Well, the event is currently on for 2021. It is scheduled to occur July 25-31 and we are planning to ride.
If you don’t remember, this is a week long bicycle ride across the great state of Iowa from the Missouri River to the Mississippi and one of the largest bike rides in the world. So, as of this post in late January, I have logged one mile on my bike in months and the average daily ride at RAGBRAI is ~65 miles. Am I worried? Maybe a bit. So, our team has approximately 6 months to train. Most likely our heavy training will begin in March because our team members live in the midwest. Snow and bicycle riding just don’t get along.
The idea here is to start documenting the training and preparation to be ready to ride 60-80 miles a day in the Iowa heat. If you want to join our team and prepare for an epic man week, reach out.
