The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

Non-riding Spouses

Does anyone know of a charter company that allows spouses who want to experience RAGBRAI without actually having to pedal a bicycle to pay a fee to “tag along” for the week? Our group has a spouse who wants to come, but doesn’t want to ride. Our idea was to have her pull a camper, but I was just wondering if any of the companies offer to transport a spouse from town to town. Thanks!

Dweller, contact Tammy at Pork Belly Ventures at tammypav@cox.net. PBV runs a bus from town to town each day. The spouse could ride the bus. http://www.pkbelly.com/specificsTopics.php

I would also contact Brancel. Bob Brancel is a great guy and may be able to help.

Or contact one of the teams with a bus.

My daughter fell into a good deal last year. My son-in-law and I wanted to ride and she wanted to tag along. We found a team that needed a driver for their van and the comraderie and knowledge really completed our Ragbrai experience. My thanks to that team! Look around, you may find just such a deal if she is willing to drive, navigate, and shop enroute!

We had a driver last year whose wife wanted to ride and he didn’t. Unfortunately, she crashed into a curb in the first overnight town and ended up going to the hospital for some stitches. She didn’t ride Monday and ended up going home Monday or Tuesday. But he stayed with us all week.
