RAGBRAI Day 2 (w/ Karras Loop)

110 miles on a HOT, sunny July Day in Iowa. Not a lot of pics today. It was a long, hard ride. But here's what I do have. Also, my Strava report is incomplete as well, as my phone died on route.

We woke up to a foggy dawn.  Warm and muggy.
Riders disappear into the mist.

Who knew?

Riders who are merely crazy stay left, those that are certifiable go right for an extra 24 miles of hilly fun!

"Where are you from?"

This was a great idea!  I just wish the map didn't look like a 2nd grader painted it on that wall.

Elk Horn, IA.  There are a number of small towns that were flying the Danish flag in this area.  Not too many Norwegians though.  Hmmm.
Former (and future) teammate Lisa (left in glasses) and her family hosted a water stop for the team on the Karras Loop.  I had the privilege to ride the Loop with Sue (right).

Mr. Pork Chop. Another staple of RAGBRAI and a must have each year.  The chops are delicious.  They give them to you, perfectly seasoned and cooked, wrapped in a paper towel.  No niceties like plates or silverware, just eat right off the bone.
