Reply To: carrying gear?

KenH, April 5, 2021 at 10:59 am

There was a short, recent thread about this which you can find here.

Yes, people do carry their own gear on this ride Most do not, some do. Among those who do some are bandits, some are not. So you might be mistaken for a bandit even though you are wearing a wristband. I have never done it so I can’t tell you much else. There are older threads on the subject and if the latest revision of the website/forum has give us a search function that works you might be able to find them. I have not tried that and given the past performance I am not expecting that search will work any better now than before but its worth a shot.

As I sometimes point out you can go halfsies if you like. Carry the gear you consider most critical on your bike and let the RAGBRAI trucks carry the rest to lessen your load. This would also let you exceed the 50 pound limit by carrying the excess on your bike.

But if you decide to be a “bagger” (I don’t think that is a term of derision, I hope not), you will have company.
