Today’s route took us north to Sheldon. We started on the Floyd River Trail a couple of blocks from the hotel and took it all the way out of town. Then US 75 and SR 60 - mostly 4 lane highway shoulder riding. A good tailwind helped push us along. We turn to the east tomorrow and the hills will come. We passed through Le Mars on the way to Sheldon, which is the start of RAGBRAI 2021 on Sunday. There are 15,500 riders registered so far. We might come back and ride it another year. We are 33 miles north of Le Mars tonight but the hotel is full of people on their way to RAGBRAI.
Le Mars has a great bike path and is known for ice cream 🙂
