Brett returns to RAGBRAI

Woofus and Brett riding the 2016 RAGBRAI

Brett and his trusty pal Woofus just spent a week working with Des Moines retailer Bike World at the 2016 RAGBRAI (“Register’s Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa”, the first and by far the biggest cross-state week-long bike ride).  On the EVT cargo bike they braved the summer heat wave out on the roads. In the afternoons there’s no doubt a lot of bikes got the best service of their lives as Brett’s mechanical skills were unleashed upon unsuspecting repair shifts. Back in the ’70s when Brett was a teenager in Iowa, reading about RAGBRAI led him to his first bike mechanic job at Albrecht’s Cycles. Over the next 20 years he gave his all to help Iowa cyclists have joyous experiences rolling on ball bearings and pneumatic tires. Whether or not you’ve ever heard of RAGBRAI, check out some of the images from this year’s ride. It’s still the biggest rolling party in the USA. Brett had a blast returning to his Iowa roots, connecting with riders in the field, and getting Iowa riders into the safe zone with EVT’s Safe Zone helmet mirror. We’re already looking forward to next year! Check out this from The Des Moines Register: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/life/living-well/ragbrai/2016/07/13/why-ragbrai-2016/86942700/
