Topic: Ragbrai (6 msgs / 114 lines)
1) From: Tim TenClay
Anyone going to be providing home roasted coffee for any of the
stopover (or roll-through) towns on Ragbrai this year?  I'm riding
it!! (YIPEE... It's my first time) and loathe the idea of being
without good coffee for the whole week...
Grace and peace,
  `tim

Brett's House is officially open to RAGBRAI Riders and Friends - must have a
love for real coffee - or know someone who does...
I will check out this year's route, and will try to hook up with the closest
stopover to Cedar Rapids...  Looks like the Independence Stopover on
We3dnesday Evening...  Sorry I won't be riding my bike.  Hope the 928S will
do as a coffee courier...
Cheers,
Brett

Greetings,
Coffee on RAGBRAI (the original week long cross state bike ride) is always hit 
or miss. As someone who's first RAGBRAI was in 1980, I speak from experience. 
In the last 10 years or so, it is generally possible to find passable coffee. 
There are a number of enterprising folks that have mobile espresso rigs. There 
are generally fairly long lines for these. The best coffee in the last few 
years has been coming from “The Coffee Bus”. I know the folks running it and 
they do an excellent job. Please contact me off list if you want more info on 
that operation.
I get my coffee fix by grinding up enough for the week and taking a cone 
filter. The group that I travel with always has access to a kitchen. Anyway, if 
you’d like some other RAGBRAI info, again, please feel free to contact me off 
list.

I know I asked this once before, but with it just about a week away: Is
anyone from the list "doing" Ragbrai?  This is my first and I'd gladly
(eagerly!) meet you in person....
(For those who don't know, Ragbrai is a week-long, bicycle ride across Iowa
-- Yes, people WANT to ride their bikes across Iowa.  So much so that the
main sponsor, the Des Moines Register, actually has to turn people away and
limit the registered riders to 10,000.... yes, that's 4 zeros!)
Anyhow, just wondering.
Grace and Peace,
  `tim

Some co-workers are joining up with some other folks who are going on in
memory of a co-worker who died last year.  Rick rode the Ragbrai, and his
son is joining the group.
