Day 1 got RAGBRAI XXXIX off to quite a start. After saying goodbye to our very gracious host in Glenwood, Jim, we headed out. It was a 59.5-ish mile course. Which is funny, because there were also 59 hills. But no, it wasn’t one hill every mile.
Day 1 gave us mechanical failures, a 113-degree heat index, and a teammate who didn’t feel so well because of the heat. We’re hoping that because of all of today’s troubles, we’ll be trouble-free from here to Davenport.
Quick blog tonight, but we’ll leave you with some photos. It’s almost dinnertime. More tomorrow!
And we’ll end with a poll…
