I got all worked up today after receiving an email from a friend who has been training for Ragbrai. She has ridden 450 miles in preparation but fears that this might not be enough. Gah!
Mr. Bickerson assured me tonight that I am well-prepared. I trained by riding 20 miles to a brew pub. Twice. Later, we checked the maps and determined there is no distance greater than 2o miles to any given bar on the route. So I must be ready. And I have new aerobars.
