alright, I get it--I'm the only one leaving messages about this event right now. I was just checking in to see if anyone else was excited about it too.

I heard news that the RAID event was going to possibly be capped at 50 riders, fyi.

Is anyone else thinking about going?
This will be the second official year for this event.
Let's hope for a tail wind!

I did this last year. Tough event but a great, long ride! It's not for everyone, but if you're an Uber Rider or want to tackle something monumental, give it a go! Great price for what can be a 16-18 hour event for full-day. Then again, you can do the half-day which ends up right south of Des Moines through Indianola.
