Greeting from Iowa

Hello from Union County, Iowa. I'm a part time pastor and part time school bus driver and I enjoy riding wherever and whenever I can. We're not car free yet, but we've managed to get rid of one car and that's a start I feel good about. I've been riding bikes all my life, but got serious about riding in the late 80's when I bought a '87 Cannondale SR400 while I was stationed in Germany. Enjoyed riding around Frankfurt for several years and then sold the bike when I moved back to the states. (have regretted it ever since). Got away from bike for awhile and then ran across a 10 year old Cannondale T400 that was still in the shipping box and that's what I'm currently riding. I'm also fond of the vintage Schwinns and just completed a rebuild of a 1987 Traveler and have a 1974 Le Tour waiting its turn. Have never ridden RAGBRAI, but am registered for this summer's ride.

Welcome to Bike Forums, suttonjp! I've heard RAGBRAI is an absolute blast.

Where there is a will, there's a way. Where there is no will, there's an excuse.
