    We really only need the cops for an emergency. Please stay out of sight in the parks. We will call you when needed. Let us have fun this week and show people out town. Is that too hard to do?

    Have been told, cops were out giving tickets to cyclist already this past weekend. Ragbrai should be viewed as a huge opportunity to raise funds for the police. Ticket bikers for anything they can, ticket anybody who they wish to that has a beer in public, loud music (not) should be a lot of fun for the riders. Its been 29 years, I would guess this will be the last. We really dont want anybody to have ANY kind of fun in this town. Thats my guess, whats yours?
