RAGBRAI in Mechanicsville looking East down Main Street

RAGBRAI in Mechanicsville

As i sat on main street in my home town of Mechanicsville from about 10am until 5:30pm there was a steady stream of bicycles through town. Even saw a few crazy people on Roller Blades! Well i was one of very few people who was able to get a birds eye view of the riders comming and going through town. I want to share with you what i saw. The Captions explain it all. Feel free to comment!!

I am one of the 4 bananas and we enjoyed our stop at Mechanicsville. In fact we enjoyed the complete RAGBRAI this year. The suits do get a little warm and we certainly rippen up. Hope to see everyone on the ride in 2009.
