RAGBRAI or Iowa's Ride? Do we have room for more than one big bike ride?

Yesterday the Director and entire staff of RAGBRAI resigned from the Des Moines Register due in part to the newspaper's handling of the Carson King story.

I spoke to the former Director, TJ Juskiewicz on my show. If you missed that, here's the link:

 

Also yesterday, TJ and his team set up Iowa's Ride! (http://iowasride.com/) which will take place between July 19 and July 25 next year and will take a northern Iowa route.

Meanwhile, the register publicly stated that RAGBRAI wasn't going anywhere and it was examining it's legal options (I didn't think it was possible for a tone deaf newspaper to become any more tone deaf, but apparently I was wrong about that).

All this leads to a very important question... Does Iowa have room for more than one 'coast to coast' bike ride?
