We’ve had a busy summer and hope you all have as well.
July in particular was amazing. We journeyed to Iowa. Specifically Sioux City Iowa for the start of Ragbrai. Ragbrai actually stands for The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa.
There had to have been close to 25,000 participants. And boy, was it hot! Got to give a lot of credit to all those bicycle riders out there! You could have fried an egg on the pavement on Saturday afternoon!In spite of the heat, we had a good time– you’ve heard about “never eat yellow snow”? well, I didn’t have a choice– unless it was between mango and pineapple…
We unveiled our brand new unicorn helmet cover named Sparky (for the way the main body of the cover sparkled in sunlight) the Unicorn. It was a big hit among … now, I guess you expect me to say little girls … but nope, it was a hit among MEN! That’s how crazy some people were at this event.
People really dressed up for the event. And some even dressed up their bicycles. We saw a few people wearing ducks on their heads… quite interesting. I wish I took a picture of one of those helmets. You’d be amazed!
All in all, it was a good time. It was very very far away from home though– a two and a half day drive for us. But you never know. You might see us there again next year!
In the meantime, we’re getting ready for the Interbike International Bicycle Expo. That’s in mid September. Check us out at booth 4149 if you’re in Las Vegas!
Till later, alligator.
