Any riders in FL want to look into forming a group and/or traveling together? Single rider from Hollywood here. This will be my second RAGBRAI. May have access to a small camper which sleeps 4 and can carry 4 bikes.
Or would be happy to join your team and travel with you.
Let’s talk. Still not sure I am going, but want to. Have a 38ft rv and have done the RAG 3 times. need a driver for the week and fellow riders to share the costs. Would be happy to go in your rv as well. Also have an established team.
Thanks for the responses. My camper is a VW Eurovan weekender. Think 2001 version of the old VW camper from the 60s. Certainly not as big as your 38′, Greg. So it’s cozy to sleep 4 but it works. Also more nimble than yours I would guess and probably better gas mileage too. But I’m sure 38′ would be much more luxurious and comfortable. My partner may be coming as well. Not sure yet. Probably won’t do much biking and might not be comfortable driving a 38′ rv, but would kick in his share of expenses.
We are in Hollywood, down by Ft. Lauderdale. If left to us, the plan would be to leave Thursday AM and drive half way, then the other half, more or less Friday; arriving Friday night or by Sat. noon at the latest. Then would like to return to be home by Monday PM. But that’s all open to negotiation.
Leaving from NW FL. Have room for one more person with bike bags and gear.
Share driving and gas, can drop in Ft Madison if on a tour or in CB. Also welcome to join our team.
Rental truck for gear, private camping each night.
Sorry I dropped of the map. I am having to replace the air ride system in my coach and am not sure at all I will be going this year. As soon as I know anything I will get back to you if it is not too late.
I am driving from Jacksonville to Des Moines and departing on/about July 13/14. I’ll be stopping one night en route, then staying with family / friends until time to depart for Council Bluffs. Departing Des Moines on/about July 29th for the return trip. Own a Kuat Sherpa rack (two bikes) and a full sized sedan, looking for a carpool mate.
