Bike Ride Across Iowa / RAGBRAI 2011

The Register's Annual Bike Ride Across Iowa. RAGBRAI. While thousands of bikers pedal their way across our beautiful state in the heat of the July summer, my flamingo buddies and I will be camped on the side of the road ready to sell them Gatorade and water to keep them alive until they reach the overnight town and the comfort of their tent.

We're excited! Cousin Rhonda is joining us this year. She's always up for an adventure and she's bringing her own pink, feathered buddy to join the crew. She'll navigate while we cruise the back highways looking for the perfect spot ~ a little shade, some nice, tall fields to serve as route-side "comfort stations" and ~ of course ~ a flat place for our lawnchairs and my living room rug.

Looking forward to seeing lots of buddies from last year. (Dave ~ can't imagine any of them will be as bad-ass as you!!) Complimentary shots for our favorite baggers? Why yes, now that you ask!!! Need some aloe-vera on those sunburned shoulders, Lance??? No problem. Bring that yellow streak to a screeching halt out by the cornfield and we'll take care of you.

Cannondale to Huffy and everything in between....Bring on the bikes!!!!
