Riders and hosts wanted

Since the Courier just came out, I figured I ought to post something new here for the surge in traffic it's likely to generate (ahem). Anyway, the granddaddy of all recreational bike rides is coming in what seems like an eternity. With all the snow and ice we've had this winter, a field of tall corn has never been so appealing.

February is a heck of a time to expect people to commit to a week of biking, but that's how it is. If you're tempted, we have plenty of space available. I count about a dozen committed riders, plus a handful who have expressed interest but haven't committed yet. We have room for 30 and would love to have you along. I guarantee it'll be a vacation like none you've ever spent.

We're hoping to finalize our team around March 1 so that we can meet RAGBRAI deadlines for registering. If you're toying with the idea, please let me know and we'll keep you in the loop.

We've been having great luck with alumni and parents in overnight towns offering their lawns for Team CoeBRAI. There's still a couple of towns unspoken for, so let us know if you'd like to host us for a night. I guarantee it'll be a Coe event like none you've ever experienced.
