RAGBRAI Day 5 – We Are Doing This!

by | Jul 24, 2014 | This Lefe Family

We’ve made it to day 5!

And we’re two-thirds finished with today’s ride. Currently having lunch in Greene.

These little towns are full of character and fun! Being a small town girl myself, I appreciate this! People go out of their way to make 10,000+ people feel welcome as we converge on their town. We make sure we patronize the local churches, schools, groups and businesses when we are hungry! We just had the most delicious scotcheroos from the Lutheran ladies!

The weather is incredible. We woke up to 55 degrees in our tent this morning at 5am, along with the familiar sound of a distant train whistle. Almost felt like I was home. Almost. 🙂

Being comfortable on the bike seat is a thing of the past I now realize. We are having to stop more often now. But we’re doing okay and are having a blast.


Will check in again soon!

      Betsy, thank you! You attended She Speaks, didn’t you? The blog hop will be coming later this week. I’m sure there will be others you’ll be able to participate in soon. Praying you and your family are doing well!
