Hi all;

I'm off to do the ride across Iowa. Should involve lots of fun and sweating!

It's my first week long ride and I've threatened to do one for years; finally got up the courage!

Lots of hills (yes Iowa has hills) and hopefully lots of downhills too.

Probably in the best shape I've been in in a decade.
(Still hard to shake off the flab the lots of muscles underneath.)

If anyone else is going it would be fun to know.

Good for you Janice! Enjoy the ride and don't forget to take time to look up and around to enjoy the scenery rather than the wheel in front of you!

My uncle used to do RAGBRAI every year. I was born and raised in the big city of Des Moines and RAGBRAI is a big deal..
Western Iowa has HUGE hills and rolling landscapes. You should take a camera.
Make sure to drink plenty of water! It can get extremely humid there.
Have fun!
