After a long career as a feature columnist and co-host of RAGBRAI for the Des Moines Register, Chuck Offenburger is now writing from his farm home near Cooper in Greene County, Iowa. His latest column features the May Term "Bicycle Writing" class being taught by Coe rhetoric instructor Kerrie Miller. Another version of the column can be found on the Raccoon River Valley Trail Web site.
As you're training for RAGBRAI, don't forget to brush up on the song "I Want to Go Back to Coe Again." If we run into Chuck along the way, and chances are good that we will, he'll expect us to sing it.
