Bike and Luggage Shipping



If you’re flying to RAGBRAI, or don’t want the hassle of lugging your bike to the starting point, we encourage you to ship your bike directly to RAGBRAI. The following companies are independent of The Des Moines Register and RAGBRAI officials.  They have been sanctioned by The Des Moines Register and RAGBRAI to provide bike and luggage shipping to the start town and back from the end town.  All arrangements are made between you and the shipping company and do not involve The Des Moines Register and RAGBRAI Officials.

ONLY REGISTERED RIDERS WITH PARTICIPANT CREDENTIALS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THIS SERVICE.

The Start and End towns for RAGBRAI XLIII will be announced at the Route Announcement Party on Saturday, January 24, 2015.


 

hcs_logoRAGBRAI has worked with High Country Shipping (HCS) for several years to provide bike and luggage shipping to and from our event.  If you contact HCS, they will arrange for all shipping details, send you shipping labels in advance and arrange for timely pick-up.

In addition, they will monitor your shipment to insure its on-time arrival, e-mail you when it arrives in Iowa, and deliver your bike to the start of RAGBRAI.  During RAGBRAI High Country Shipping will transport your bike box across the state to the finish.

At both the start and finish High Country Shipping will have a booth conveniently located next to RAGBRAI’s bike shop partners; Letsches Bike Shop for assemblies at the start and Harper’s Cycling & Fitness for disassemblies at the finish.

Shipped bikes should not arrive earlier than two weeks prior to the start of the ride.  Riders are strongly encouraged to make their reservation in advance with HCS online. After your online order is placed, HCS will then contact you to confirm shipping.  Riders will be charged when their bike arrives on time in Iowa.
