Making Music on RAGBRAI 2019

I just got back from RAGBRAI, the annual bike ride across Iowa. I had a great time making music on RAGRBRAI 2019 with my fellow cyclists!

By the way, RAGBRAI stands for Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa. More than 10,000 cyclists ride for 7 days the width of the state, camping at night and cycling by day.

Here’s me on my bike in Iowa.

Along the way, I ran into MANY musicians. John was carrying his tuba behind him in a trailer. Cary had a violin on his back. Alecia had a trumpet strapped to her bicycle. Jim was carrying his banjo. Not to be outdone, I had my ukulele.

I had many chances to play and make people happy. Diane and I sang “This Land is Your Land” and got a three-year-old girl interested in playing ukulele. 


Jim and I played banjo and ukulele at a state park.

We even sang “Happy Birthday” to create a singing telegram for a fellow rider’s father’s birthday!

All in all, I had a great time. It was fun sharing music on RAGBRAI 2019 with my fellow cyclists!
