The RAGBRAI Pre-Ride is an annual event about 50 days in advance of the big ride. There are nine riders who ride the route and get the best look – from the seat of a bicycle.

We have arrived and unloaded bikes in Sioux Center. The crew will be getting a good nights rest and heading to Cherokee at 7 AM.

Unlike RAGBRAI, there are no lines, but no services either. But that doesn’t cut back on the hospitality.

A big thanks to Transitions for some new Oakley sunglasses. I am anxious to try these out!
