Reply To: Self Supported (Bagger) info

I did my fifth RAGBRAI last year–the first one self-supported. Got a lot of great advice and info from “direwolf” (above) and even managed to meet up with his crew on the route. Bagging again this year. My riding buddy and I got enough of the overnight towns and crowds the first four times, so we really enjoyed the freedom of not having to mess with them. You can pack lighter than you think. We did make stop at a post office two days in and mailed back a package of stuff we realized we weren’t going to need. There’s probably going to be either a WalMart or Dollar General in almost every town you pass through. Don’t pack what you can buy. For example, we took T-shirts, shorts and underwear we didn’t mind throwing away rather than rewashing. Bonus this year: If you’re not up to riding the full 100 on Wednesday, you can create your own. day.
