What RAGBRAI Means to Me

Pie. Sweet delicious pie.

If I had to rank what RAGBRAI means to me:

1. Pie

2. Booze

3. Biking (but only because I had to include a 3rd)

This morning, as the RAGBRAI riders begin arriving to Des Moines, make sure you welcome them out at the HyVee on Grand in West Des Moines. Coll will be there from 10-noon, and while you’re there, have yourself a piece of “Chocolate Peanut Butter Pig” pie

pie…it’s chocolate, peanut butter, bacon bits, and whip cream)…and to say it’s AWESOME is an understatement.

Behold…

There will be a ton of fun activities out at the HyVee on Grand all afternoon long!
