Every year about this time, people start searching for a team to join. Do you want to join a team? Are you looking for a charter? There are many good charters on RAGBRAI but I think Pork Belly Ventures (PBV) is the best!!! I’ve traveled with them for years! They offer a lot of extras that you may not be able to get anywhere else. RAGBRAI will announce the Route for 2013 on January 26, 2013. As soon as the route is announced, PBV will send out their invitation letter. To be added to the list for that invitation, contact Pete: petephillips@cox.net or Tammy: tammypav@cox.net . You can check out PBV at http://www.pkbelly.com/about_us.php. I’ll meet you under PBV’s big circus tent!!!!

  • I post this info because Beebs asked me to keep him updated about my Favorite Charter!!! From PBV’s 2013, invitation letter; “Last year PBV built a 20-foot Portable Restroom Trailer. it’s nice to have a porcelain alternative to the standard kybo! PBV’s trailer is equipped with six toilet stalls, a walk-through urinal area, all with flushing fixtures. There are power roof vents, light fixtures, hand-sanitizing dispensers inside, and two sinks with soap dispensers outside. We’ll probably dim the lights a bit this year–it was blinding in there at 2:00 am. Mirrors and paper towels are in the sink area at the front of the trailer. In Pork Camp, the restroom trailer will typically be located near the shower trailers of Pork Belly Ventures.”

    Yeah Mich, I know, just pulling your chain a little. Like i said last year if PBV is not giving you a big discount, they should!! Or at least provide a couple of Buds and a soft curb for you to enjoy ’em on.

    Tammy/Pete, you reading this?

  • Yeah, but Mich cheated on PBV. He rode with Bubba’s Pampered Pedalers a couple of years ago. That dirty, two-timing cheater.

  • Heck, I traveled with Bubba several years ago, too. But that was for BRAG. I’ve let Tammy and Pete schlep my (and our) gear across Iowa since 1996. Were pretty pampered by PBV.

    pat, I totally agree, Tammy, Pete and their PBV crew do a fantastic job! I’ll never again do RAGBRAI with any other charter!!! I’ll keep my opinion of Bubba to myself!!! 👿

    No – we’d like to hear about Bubba. He’s the only game in town on some of the other week long rides and we’d like to know if we’d be better off just taking our own tents, etc.
