Team Simpson riders paused at Clarke College for a photo after challenging Potter Hill and before proceeding on to the riverfront in Dubuque. Everyone agreed that Potter Hill was steeper and longer than any they had attempted before. A number of Team Simpson riders were able to join the 30% or so of all riders who made it all the way up the hill without walking. The final three miles from Clarke College are all downhill and will be a welcome respite from the hills leading into Dubuque. Then it's on to the waterfront to dip our front tires in the Mississippi River to ceremonially complete thisi year's RAGBRAI.
