Becky is off for RAGBRAI 2012.  She drove to the east side of Iowa today.  She’ll camp tonight in Clinton, catch a bus to Sioux Center on the west side tomorrow and start the 500+/- mile ride back on Sunday.  Seven days of biking (the shortest day is 42 miles, the longest is 104 miles, if she does the Karras Century Loop), tent camping, cold showers, Port-a-Potties and fair food.  Yeehaw!

Not my thing, but I think this will be the 10th year she’s done it.  Our sister-in-law, Toni, will be going with her.  This must be Toni’s 5th or 6th time.  Apparently this sickness is contagious, but you have to be someone susceptible!

Becky rode nearly 1300 miles in preparation this year.  Sometimes that’s down around 1000 and sometimes as high as 1800.  Wish her luck!  It would take more than luck for me to accomplish what she has.

Becky usually emails me or calls me once or twice a day and generally I reformat that into an update email blast that I send out to anyone interested.  Let me know if you want to be on the list for the updates.

Becky (my wife) has been doing RAGBRAI for nearly two decades. (Our Sister-in-Law Toni has been doing it with her for at least 10 years.) Becky trains (less and less every year) throughout the Spring. The ride is always the last week of July.
