RAGBRAI XLVIII lottery results will be emailed to riders throughout the week!

bus back to start??

first time rider, I’m having a hard time figuring out how to get back to the start. I’m coming up from KC and would like to leave my car in Sioux Center then catch a bus back. I’m part of a team that has a van following but will continue on east after the end. I’d rather not pay for a charter service since I don’t need the bag hauling or tent service. any options??

Have you considered driving to Clinton and leaving your car there? Then you could arrange to take one of the Charters bus to Sioux City on Saturday, July 23. You would only be paying for the bus trip!

I am pretty sure the charters also drive back to the West side of the state after the ride. I think it is the same price for the trip if you do it on the 21st or the 28th.

Mich, better check you calendar if you show up on the 23rd it will be a Monday.

thanks guys, there are some charters listed on the site that still offer bus only to the start from Clinton. I’m ready to roll!

Hi Paul. Were you able to get a ride from Clinton back to Sioux Center? I also need to find a way to get back. Thanks, Stan

Stan, I’d suggest you check with the charters (not much time left) and see what is still available, as Paul seems to have done!!!!

Thanks, Paul and Brent. I think I was able to get a return trip with out of staters, but not for sure. I will contact Ron Oman as a backup. Thanks again, Stan

Pork Belly offers charters in both directions also. Most leave their car in Clinton and take the charter back to the start on the front end of RAGBRAI. It saves time at the end of RAGBRAI traveling back to the start town for your car. They also haul your bike. Check out the service at: pkbelly.com. Its offered to riders who use their services during the week AND those that don’t.

How did an almost 8 year old post get resurrected? I’m sure the OP found a ride 9 years ago.

I wondered why he wanted to go to Sioux Center.. Glitch in the system. Pretty funny now. I am trying to find my way back from Clinton. Have several options, just need to pick the very best one!
