My wife, Gail, and I may be the only COEBRAI riders from Texas, but we hope to represent our adopted State well. Since there are no hills here in Houston (other than freeway overpasses) we drive 50 to 100 miles on the weekends to the famous "Hill County" of Central Texas to get our hill training in. When they say this year's RAGBRAI is the flattest ever, we know that is a relative term, so we are not changing our training regimen at all. We are very excited to be participating with the Coe team this year and hope training goes well for all of you. See you in July! Go Kohawks! Go Hawkeyes! Hook-em Horns!
