RAGBRAI Riders: More Rhubarb Pie and More Young Riders Needed

Statewide Iowa — (RI) —¬†Thousands of bicyclists are making their way from Atlantic to Winterset this week on the annual statewide ride called RAGBRAI.

During the overnight stop in Atlantic Sunday night, several members of Team Bad Monkey discussed some of their observations so far. Craig Sommeren, from Chicago, says the host community residents are very friendly, but they never have enough of one type of pie.

Sommeren and teammates Zack Humphries from Kansas City and Al Hiller from Liberty, Missouri, offer some advice to those who’ve considered riding on the week-long ride but never tried it.

Sommeren says he has a real worry about the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, which is in its 47th year.

About ten-thousand cyclists left Council Bluffs on Sunday. They’ll complete the ride Saturday in Keokuk about 427 miles later.
