This week I talk about riding my bicycle across the state of Iowa in RAGBRAI (Register’s Annual Bike Ride Across Iowa). The shortest day was 57 miles and the longest was 100 miles. with a total of 462 miles. This bucket list experience is crossed off my list. I stopped at the 2 quilt shops that were open when I went past and bought some fabric at each shop.
