Day Three: Algona to Clear Lake

Glad for the shorter day today - 110kms, 1,068ft climb. It's hard to ride past the best pork chops you've ever tasted! "Mr Pork Chop" is a RAGBRAI legend, who has been serving inch-and-a-half thick Iowa chops to the riders for 25 years.


  1. Half way through. Wow. I only hope it's not too hard to sit down.... Well done. We are so thrilled and look forward to seeing you when you get back. Hang in there! Rachel - FFI

  2. Fantastic Mark. Day 3 and still in the big race....Obviously broken the pain barrier!
    Hows the amazing Jennifer, is this togetherness in its unique form? Hope you are getting more than Iowa Pork Chops...Hang in there..cheers..Maggie and John

  3. Hey - see from your picture they have already awarded you the Polka Dot Bandana. Have you been named King of the Mountains already?
    Cheers Carol, Denis, Hannah, Cameron and Ricky the hound.

  4. Someone has a new nickname!!! I cant believe you actual did this whole bike trip thing!! Well done, Mr. Pork Chop.
