These are the travels and thoughts of the Flappy Birds in Team Flamingo. Team Flamingo is a RAGBRAI team riding across Iowa every summer. This blog began during the 2006 ride but will be used to chronicle our exploits in an ongoing basis.
Glenwood to Davenport. Doesn't look like too much of a challenge this year. Looks like most of the work will be in the first two days. Sunday and Monday will each be about 5,000 feet climbs in 65 miles a piece. There will be a tough hill outside of Boone on the 3rd day but the rest looks pretty good. The Century Ride will be on the 3rd day between Carroll and Boone. It will turn the 72 mile day into a 100 mile day.
