    Cool-blue Rhythm Events Close Together?

    I love bikes! I love ALL bikes!

    I have a dilemma and want to hear thoughts.

    I rode the Laramie Enduro this past weekend and had the time of my life. Can't wait for next year!

    Also love RAGBRAI and have the opportunity to ride with a well equipped team and my wife now wants to go.

    They have historically been the same week. Next year I want to do both. Thinking of RAGBRAI Sun, Mon, Tues then hightailing it back west to ride the Enduro Saturday.

    Maybe I'm not looking for advice but wanted to share my stoke!! Too many negative waves around here.

    I have been with many loved ones at the end of their lives... not one of them said they wished they had spent more time working. Go make memories...go play! Live the life you love.

    Funny, I grew up in Iowa and live in Wyoming now. In 2006 I rode Sunday-Thursday of RAGBRAI then drove to Laramie on Friday and raced the Enduro on Saturday. For sure the pie, pork chops, and beer had more of an effect on my Enduro effort than the miles ridden that week.

    I say do it if you can. I just got back from a week at RAGBRAI, and back in May rode the Kokopelli Trail. Two unforgettable experiences in one year.

    Good stuff! This is exactly what I wanted to hear.

    evan, I don't think I'll cut is quite as close as you! Indeed pie, beer, stormy camping take some recovery.

    Cheers!
