RAGBRAI survivor

Well, another RAGBRAI has come and gone. Andrea and I had a great time. The route lived up to its billing as the third easiest ever, and I survived quite well on the fixie. I even bumped the gearing up to a 42x14 after the first day. It served me well until we hit the eastern Iowa hills on Saturday, and then made some monster climbs a little tougher than maybe they needed to be.

Lance Armstrong, however, did not finish the ride. And, despite his intent to be "like one of the other 10,000 riders," he was unable to abandon his press agent for the week, and seemed to have a little trouble dropping his 100-rider "Livestrong Posse."

Oh, well. Pictures later (but not of Lance).

Monday Night Ride

As far as I know, the Monday night ride is on as usual. I rode in from Louisville this morning just so Andrea and I could do the ride without driving two cars to Lincoln. So, in short, and to sum up: y'all better be there.

6:00 at Blue's.

Hills, thunderstorms, mist, fog and some sunshine. Laughter, pacelines, solo riding, hydration, ingestion of foriegn sustenance, the scan for the ideal, non- threatening, not-so-prickly bush (es), tents or school gym floors, the anticipation of restful sleep, loudness, quietness, simultaneous sounds of snoring. Then, zippers. Repeat.
