  • I’m from Lawrence. Going by myself. Couldn’t find anyone to go with me so had to sign up for a charter service.

  • We have a group of 7-9 riders and were looking for transportation options based out of KC. We’ve used a Des Moines based charter in the past, but we’re looking for something a little closer to home. Can either of you share details of how you’re getting to the start and back from the finish? The route is so far north this year–Not a lot of interest among friends and family to drop us off and/or pick us up. Cheers!

  • I have a friend driving me to Omaha where I’ll join Pork Valley Ventures for a shuttle the rest of the way. They will pick me up in Des Moines. I think they will do just shuttles. I don’t have enough space to haul 7-9 people, plus bikes, plus myself. That was the only option I could find. Since I couldn’t get a group together I couldn’t sign up for a vehicle pass. I haven’t found any local KC bike shops who are going with a group. Have you looked into charters? Bike World out of Des Moines has a charter. Did you sign up as a group and purchase a vehcile pass? Renting a uhaul might be an option if you did and folks could take turns dirving/riding. There is also a charter that will bring you back West to your vehicles at the end of the ride.
