In his 1999 book, RAGBRAI: Everyone Pronounces It Wrong," the co-founder of the ride pulls back no punches. The diphthong ai in American pronounciation rhymes with a long a, as in hair, lair, fair, pair and so on. Only an ignoramus would comb his hire, stare at the giant boat at the state fire, or tell his woman that they make a peach of a pyre (well, maybe once in a while)," Karras writes. And yes, some of the best educated, most cultured and most sophisticated people in the nation, if not the world (along with a few klutzes), persist in pronouncing it RAGBRYE.

I had the pleasure of meeting John Karras in the summer of 2016 on RAGBRAI. John had ridden with Team Skunk years ago and paid us a visit after working on the Karras loop one day. John is a great story teller and used his talent to tell the story of the 45 year history of RAGBRAI.

Thought this book had color photos in it. I don't think it was described very well. Could of brought it in Kindle version much cheaper. Although the book was good.
Uaha
This book is great, a nice reminder of Iowa & RAGBRAI in the middle of December. I enjoyed hearing the history and seeing the pictures, but I had actually never thought of pronouncing it the way the author suggests. It helps to love ragbrai! I knew about some but not all of the characters and the events. A lot of this info is on the ragbrai website for free under the history section.

I have done 8 RAGBRAIs ...2006 to 2013 & going back in 2014 for RAG XLII.
It was a good book to read about the two founders of the ride & the first 25 years of RAGBRAI.

When we first found out that RAGBRAI #27 was going to come to Tripoli, IA on the morning of July 29, 1999 for breakfast, I was tapped to develop the web pages for the Tripoli RAGBRAI Committee. This is not terribly surprising because I'm really the only one here who does this stuff. Anyhow, RAGBRAI has long been sort of a not-quite-so-cottage-anymore industry in this state. Personally, I've never really ridden it from end to end. I've managed to get away and ride it for a day or two ever now and then over the years and that, unfortunately, has been about it. I recall when it first started back in 1973. I think we all thought it was pretty amazing that anybody would want to ride from one end to the state to the other on a bycicle. In those days, I think a lot of people viewed it with just a bit of suspicion. I suppose there a few who still view it with a bit of suspicion. In the years since, I've moved away, moved back, moved away, and moved back to Iowa. Some places where I've been, the only things they know about Iowa have to do with the Presidential Primaries and RAGBRAI. And, no, we don't grow potatos here...that's Idaho your're thinking of. Buckeye State?...that's Ohio. RAGBRAI has cured a lot of people of the notion that Iowa is flat, by the by. There have been times, over the years, when I think I found RAGBRAI to be irritating as well as interesting. When you have to get somewhere in a car, and RAGBRAI is between you and your destination...you might want to reconsider your travel plans. But, mostly, we just love RAGBRAI, in this state. John Karras (formally of the Des Moines Register and along with Donald Kaul one of the RAGBRAI "key instigators") has written a pretty good book, here. If you've never heard of RAGBRAI, or witnessed the spectacle of 7 or 8,000 people moving down the road enmass on byicycles you might not think this to be a remarkable thing. But, after reading this book you will probably feel like you want to get acquainted. No doubt, you, too, will probably show up here, one of these summers huffing and puffing along with everybody else down Iowa's sylvan highways and byways (hopefully with the wind to your back) from west to east where you will triumphantly dip your bike tires in the Mississippi River. If you want to experience a "Moment Of Triumph" in your life...this is probably a good one to aim for. I felt pretty triumphant doing that, one time, and I didn't even go the whole trip. If you've ridden RAGBRAI, this book should bring back some good memories. RAGBRAI has become kind of like an old friend who comes around just once a year. But it's an old friend with unusual grace. It comes by, it visits for a while, and then it leaves. When it's gone you tend to think, "Well...that was okay."
