    RAGBRAI or AGRBRAI

    The staff for the Registerís Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa just resigned en masse from the Des Moines Register and will form a competing ride next year.

    They already have a website and registration process in place:

    What's the world coming to when some guy trying to do something good gets smeared by a reporter for stuff he posted on social media god knows when. I find it ironic that the reporter got it as well. Crimes have statutes of limitations, but a tweet is forever.

    Before Kids, I used to do a lot of bike vacations, but I never did RAGBRAI for a couple reasons. Its basically self supported -- and having grown up in Missouri and attended graduate school in Minnesota, I drove through Iowa a lot and its not a real awe inspiring place.

    If you can't make it to Tuscany,

    then Ride the Rockies was the best one I did in the U.S.

    I did the full week in 2007 and a few days in 2011 with some RBR Lownjers. Itís worth doing once just to be amongst a seemingly never-ending stream of 10,000+ riders from every walk of life riding every kind of bike imaginable.

    I do the Seagull Century every year on the Eastern Shore of MD. It's 7000+ riders. One day of that is enough. I can't imagine a week of those crowds. Do you get the Jesus guy who tows a 10' cross on wheels behind his bike.

    No Jesus that I recall, but there was a 6 foot tall banana and a chicken...
