The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

Couple Questions for a First Timer

Hey Friends!

I’ll make this short.

1) I’m nervous about the lottery. Should I be? What are the chances that the three of us (I’m going for the first time, with my wife and best friend; the three of us have never been.) won’t get in? Are there things we can do to increase our chances?

2) Should I register as a ‘team’ for the three of us? Is there any reason to?

3) Any reason NOT to consider Brancel Charters?

It is so rare to hear serious complaints about any charter here that I cannot recall ever hearing any. The one year I went with a charter I used the Riverbend Club charter which is very reasonably priced and which did a great job for me. I would say that charters are well worth considering however if you are willing and able to do everything for yourself then I hear that the Register truck option works quite well too, even for people in their seventh decade of life and beyond.
