Hello! My almost father-in-law is coming to Johnson City August 28th - Sept 1st. He wants some challenging road courses and possibly a group to ride with. He's completed RAGBRAI several times and rides almost daily. He's from St. Louis so he's excited for some big hills. If you any suggestions, please let me know! Thanks, Dana danasuich@gmail.com
