Here It Is!!! Time for RAGBRAI!!!
Every year I get together with 20,000 of my best friends who I haven't met yet and we ride our bikes across Iowa in a week. This is called RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa). The route varies each year but it is a great way to see Iowa. This year the route is 462 miles.
This is my 13th year. It is an annual extravaganza that is too exciting and fun for words. I find that riding RAGBRAI provides a great sense of accomplishment so that what I confront the rest of the year doesn't seem so daunting.
I ride with Team Flamingo. I am Z-Bird. It is a great group of friends who train all spring to get ready for this trip. As you can tell, we really get into the Pink Flamingo thing. If you go to our website you will see some pretty scary pictures.
I just wanted to tell you that life involves more than using technology to support learning. Life is filled with opportunities to do new things and confront new challenges and meet new people who interestingly become part of your life.
Go out and do something CRAZY this week. Maybe I will see you on the RAGBRAI road.
