Erl, yep, there's a highway and it's got a good shoulder on the side as well. Not a lot of bike shops up that way, but if you need help, Nebraskans (Midwesterners in general) will give you a lift to the nearby towns.
I think your Schwables will be fine w/o any sealant. I have a pair of 35c Schwalbes that I just dedicate to do RAGBRAI every year, 4 years going strong, I think 2 flats total over the years. I also have 42c Schwalbe Marathons I use for commuting/general riding/gravel riding...last year, I did 12k on them - zero flats....ZERO! Have fun man! Make sure to meet some locals, they make the trip memorable On Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 12:23:15 PM UTC-6, WETH wrote: > > Patricks and Tim, > Thanks for the info.
