Day 2 to Perry
For me, at least, the 83-mile ride to Perry ranks among my all-time top 5 RAGBRAI days. Those who opted for the century loop might disagree, but I loved the long, fast descents that rewarded most of the tough but manageable climbs. A 10-mile stretch from Kimbleton to Hamblin was particularly breathtaking.
A storm curtailed our evening activity, but no harm done as the rest of the week offers 50-ish mile rides and cool temperatures.
Thanks to the Finneseths for hosting in Perry. Tomorrow we dry out in Des Moines with Steve Van Every.
