Pork Belly Update #9---Join Us and RAGBRAI on the Taco Ride!

September 5, 2020

Dear Friends,

It's been a different kind of summer for Pork Belly Ventures--with only one multi-day bike ride, the Missouri Double Cross on the Katy Trail. Though we did get to hang out on the back of a truck, we felt a little lost in July without our best week of the year, RAGBRAI, and the pleasure of your company.


We know it's a stretch for those of you in New York and California, but we're inviting you anyhow. Want to ride the biggest weekly ride in the country??

Come and Ride




Thursday, September 17th,

About 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.


This event is part of

RAGBRAI's Fall Road Show,

which pops up on many of Iowa's beautiful trails

during September and October.

We're delighted to be popping up with them

on the Wabash, right here in our back yard.


* Park at the Trailhead

in Council Bluffs,

anytime in the late afternoon!


* Ride south for 10 miles on the beautiful

Wabash Trace Nature Trail

to Tobey Jack's

on Main Street in

downtown Mineola, Iowa!

(20 mile round trip)


* Sit inside or outside at

Tobey Jack's,

and enjoy a little food

and libation!


* PBV will be set up

on Main Street in Mineola,

next to our RAGBRAI friends

--Anne Lawrie and Andrea Parrott--

and their Merchandise Trailer.


* Come See Us!

We'll want to tell you all about

our new, 4-day

spring ride on

the Wabash Trace!


Whether or not you can make the Taco Ride, please know that -- even during the year that time stood still -- Pork Belly Ventures is working toward a better 2021! We'll write to you again soon, and may you and everyone you love be safe and well.


All our best,



Tammy and Pete
