This week was great, I got to check off one of the items from my bucket list! I rode RAGBRAI for one day this week from Boone to Altoona. It was so much fun and now I'm hooked! I so want to go again next year, not sure if I'll be ready for a full week, but definitely a couple days!! A big shout-out to Kyle's Bikes in Ankeny for letting us borrow his daughter's bike for me and his own bike for my hubby!! I will be working on purchasing my own road bike from Kyle's to get myself prepared and in shape for next year. I'm happy that I have a bike trainer that I can use indoors for the winter time to keep me going! I will definitely be using it this year!!

We went with some really good friends of ours and shared some great laughs! What great memories to cherish!

I stopped by the local scrapbook shop to see what types of paper and embellishments are out there to scrap my pictures from the ride. Not a whole lot, so if anyone knows of where I can get some cute bike stuff, let me know!

Here's some of the pics from the ride!
