Want to escape the daily grind of work and the news cycle but don't have time to bike across Iowa? All this week, IPR's Ben Kieffer is on RAGBRAI with Team No Pie Refused. Here's a photo recap of the ride so far.
Host Ben Kieffer takes us through preparations for RAGBRAI 2019, from loading up, to locating NPR's team "No Pie Refused," in Council Bluffs. We hear how teams are handling the storms and significant rain on Sunday, a 58 mile ride to Atlantic. Along the way we meet a 93-year-old doing his 7th RAGBRAI, and a couple rollerblading the 427 miles across Iowa.
Ben Kieffer and NPR's team No Pie Refused get back on their bikes and take in the sites and sounds of Iowa as RAGBRAI 47 heads east.
Host Ben Kieffer takes us through his experiences on day three of RAGBRAI starting in Winterset, traveling through South Central Iowa, crossing over Interstate 35 to the eastern side of the state and finishing in Indianola.
