On the Road Again
This year's RAGBRAI Team Grinnell is more than 70 strong. That's roughly 140 Grinnellian legs pumping over 418 miles of Iowa terrain on what has been called America's favorite bicycle ride. This year's ride, which begins July 20, is supposed to be one of the shortest and flattest since the annual ride started as a lark back in 1973, but we want to hear what you think of that when you're actually out there climbing those hills. This year's ride includes a stop in Mason City for a special dinner in Music Man Square on July 23. It all sounds like fun, and for those of us whose bike tire rubber is not meeting the road this year, we hope all you Team Grinnell riders can take some time to send us your "real time" stories and photos from out there. Please use #GCRagbrai14 for your social posts and images, and we'll share them via Facebook and Twitter, aggregate them in a social media album, and post them here in Forum.
