Enjoy RAGBRAI. Some of the most memorable weeks of my life were spent on RAGBRAI! I hope to ride it again someday...... My first RAGBRAI started in Onawa!

How did McHose Park turn out, and what are the current conditions of the course? I can't imagine playing that course and also riding 62.2 miles in the same day.

Devil's Glen? Pretty sure that my wife rode her bike for here to downtown a couple times, during Worlds. Great bike routes in Davenport.

I did not play the course but it might be worth a look.

Really curious myself. That place is freaky. Thinking about doing makeovers on Saturday. Des Moines challenges involving for courses this weekend locally.

Dura Ace Di2. Battery pack is to power the derailleurs.

Unfortunately I lost my phone while I was in Boone and spent several hours trying to get it back. Did not have time to hit that course up. Got my phone back, though!

I should have thought of that.

How reliable is it? Did you have to recharge during Ragbrai?

I haven't ever had any issues with it, so I'd say very reliable. I was going to bring a spare battery to RAGBRAI but forgot it at home. Did not need to recharge at all, and I wasn't shy about shifting through all the hills!

Glad you had a good ride!
