Ready for the Long Haul

It just wouldn't be RAGBRAI without our Team Uffda trailer. We've had a couple different versions and they've all been rebuilt and updated since we first began using one around 1995. Our current trailer carries five regular bikes OR four regular bikes and one tandem. It just depends on how we're feeling. This year along with some fresh coats of paint, the Team Uffda trailer received a few new signs. The left side now presents one of the Alzheimer's Association's slogans, "Have Fun. Do Good. End Alzheimer's," and the back shares our mission and why we ride: to end Alzheimer's and remember Grandpa. This year our official Sag Wagon Driver will be Aunt Belinda, as she has so graciously offered to drive our support vehicle with our trailer. We're confident she will obey all posted speed limit signs, and keep her hands at 10 and 2 on the steering wheel. May the Force be with you, Belinda!



  1. I am a bit worried about our "driver" based on her comments....I will be ... dodging cows/pigs on the back roads, going from point A to B with your power bars, bananas & beer is what I do best. Here's to honoring your Dad in my special way!

  2. Looking forward to many new adventures and memories with you, Belinda!

  3. Hmmm, someone named anonymous ratted me out...just so the other support vehicle drivers aren't worried about the Nowegian Berzerker driving the back roads of IA for Team Uffda, I always get the beer there safely. Krissy, I can't wait to be back and helping the Team. This year will be special and one to remember! Belinda P.S....go pinch your Dad.
