    Third easiest!

    So have another beer, slack off on the training, and let the bike collect dust. This year will be easy. :D

    Still not quite sure what my RAGBRAI will look like. Lot of ins, lot of outs, lot of what have yous.

    We could be hard core bagging it to the start from Minneapolis and back after or I could be part of a tag team tandem with a couple other people SAGing. We'll see!

    I need to start a directed advertising campaign in northern Iowa to convince somebody along the route that this is an awesome idea that totally won't get you sued.

    Also, if you haven't been paying attention, routes are being posted all this week. The 71 mile day looks to have some good short cut potential.
