30 Bananas a Day!

My knee is not fully better, but i just couldn't sit at home and let RAGBRAI happen, and not be there, so i did the last 2 days. I was pretty happy with how well my knee held up. 

I was really happy with the amount of good food i found this year. There are certainly vendors happy to sell you all sorts of junk food, just like anywhere else, but i also happened to find a lot of vendors selling good stuff. I bought some fresh made watermelon juice after the ride from a guy who had cantaloupe and cucumber juice, too. I saw one vendor along the ride selling peaches, and bananas are for sale every couple of miles. I fueled myself on fruit smoothies, bananas, dates, grapes and water. 

You can go for a bike ride anywhere, but nowhere else can you have the amenities that RAGBRAI has. It's so nice to get off your bike every ten miles and have access to fresh made fruit smoothies, bike mechanics, bike parts and accessories, porta-potties, friendly people, displays of bicycle art to look at, live bands playing music and great places to take a break.

I hope any cyclist who happens upon this blog decides to check out this ride. Google "RAGBRAI"

I hope to see some you out there next year!

^ My ride, with this year's RAGBRAI jersey on it. 

^ Man in a banana costume singing classic rock songs re-done with cycling lyrics. 

^ Did i mention this is the oldest and largest annual ride of it's kind? 10,000-20,000 riders on any given day.
