The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

Getting Bikes from NY to Iowa

Any New Yorker’s interested in sharing a van or truck to transport bicycles from NY to Iowa. Looking to not ship as I’ve had problems in the past. Looking to drive out with bicycles while fellow riders fly. Anyone from NY interested in having your bike driven out and sharing the cost of the van rental?

I may be. Still considering driving my own vehicle out w/sig other and having it as a support vehicle for the ride. Mid size SUV.

ship your bikes from Dannys Cycles in NYC, Westchester & Connecticut to Bike World (3 locations), Kyle’s or Rasmusson in Des Moines. all of these shops are reputable and will have your bike ready for Ragbrai. some stores rent bicycle boxes also. as far as shipping UPS and FedEx are good, but i have heard of them loosing freight.

I might drive out there with my bike in my car, but could otherwise be open to sharing a van. I’m also looking to join a team with some NYC riders. Anyone have a spot open?
