Today my post is for my Dad! I am writing this as he rides in his first leg of RAGBRAI 2008. RAGBRAI is The Des Moines Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa! It is an annual seven-day bicycle ride across the state of Iowa. The ride is the longest, largest and oldest touring bicycle ride in the world. My dad was one of hundreds of thousands of cyclists to register for the race and one of only 10,000 to have their names drawn to participate! As this week goes on I will be keeping track of where they are along the route chart.
If you are in Iowa and have a chance to go watch the riders, it should be quite a site to see…. and if you wouldn’t mind, please cheer loudly for Dad Savage!
I thought this print by Katie Jeanne Reim was appropriate for this post.
Way to go Dad, we are very proud of you! Have a great ride!
