The Useful Bits has all sorts of useful information. (Or at least it will soon!) In the bike section, we will tell you all sorts of amazing bits related to bicycling, and more specifically, useful bits about the Ride Across Iowa, or RAGBRAI. Enjoy!

The Van Dykes and Raub(s) RAGBRAI 2011 Party

There are five of us embarking on this adventure; three are leaving five days in advance to drive and two will be flying out. All five of us will be camping each night in a new town where we will be joined by almost 10,000 other riders on our seven day trip across the state of Iowa.
