We're in! Now what?

Anyone else get a similar e-mail today?

"CONGRATULATIONS! CoeBRAI PARTICIPANT, Your wristband number is: 123456. Now that you have your wristband number, it's time to get ready for RAGBRAI."

Boy howdi!

I have loads of information to pass along, but not until everyone informs me of their jersey size and style. If you'd like extra jerseys or shorts, the order deadline is May 15. Order forms are here.

Logistically, most of your questions can be answered in the eEdition of the RAGBRAI Participant Guide. You will find information on bike shipping, airport shuttles, long-term parking, cross-state shuttles, and much more. I'll post a link once I can figure out how to download it one piece.

Also, the CoeBRAI-approved 30-gallon tubs we use for storing and transporting gear are the weekly wow at Target. Act fast and you can save a few bucks.

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at the 1st occasional CoeBRAT on May 15. If you haven't registered, there's still time.

Happy trails!
