Thanks RAGBRAI riders
July 26, 2012 - Bennet Goldstein
What a pleasure it was to interview riders on RAGBRAI the past few days. Every single one I talked to was more than willing to take some time to tell me how their ride was going, what they liked about Iowa and why they are on the trip. Over the past few days I’ve talked to riders from Texas, California, Washington, New Jersey, Arizona, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and, of course, Iowa.
Often when I’m out on the streets on regular stories, people will see a reporter and walk the other way. That didn’t happen for RAGBRAI and it was a bunch of fun to learn their stories.
Also, a huge pad on the back to the local volunteers. They did a great job showcasing Marshalltown and then responding to the vicious storms that rolled through Wednesday night.
