Joe the cyclist (@RealUniballer) describes RAGBRAI as “a festival of semi naked people, weird sunburns, music, beer, and fair food…”

RAGBRAI® (The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa) is an annual seven-day bicycle ride across my home state. It’s the oldest, largest and longest bicycle touring event in the world.

The Tour de France was spectacular, but events like RAGBRAI are the real deal – everyday cyclists (some may say crazy) out riding their bikes for the fun of it all. I’ve never biked it, but after following the #RAGBRAI hashtag, it’s going to the top of my 2011 event list.

The event goes through July 31 so if you can’t get out there and join them, enjoy some live streaming RAGBRAI photos of the world’s largest semi-naked cycling event.

  1. I’ve read more about RAGBRAI this year than ever before and it really seems cool. There are so many great cycling events, but I think you and I should put this one on our wish list.

  2. RIDE IT! The ride is fantastic and the people of Iowa are the worlds greatest hosts. The riders range from moms and/or dads with their kids having a wonderful week-long ride together to wild and crazy, like Mardi Gras on a bicycle for a *week*!

    Do a google for RAGBRAI (web search AND check out image search). See my start of a blog where I’ve mentioned it and will mention more in the future (http://photogryph.wordpress.com/) and visit the website of my team, Team Crude (http://www.teamcrude.com) if you want to see more about the ride.

    Did I say RIDE IT!? 🙂
