Driving from PA to IA

Three of us from the Philadelphia area were planning to rent a car and drive to Lansing in one long day, arriving on Friday 21 Jul. We’d leave the car in the long-term lot, then take one of the charter service shuttles to the ride start at Orange City. Overnight in Lansing on the return and head back to the Phila area early on Sun 30 Jul.

Seems my riding partners have had a change of heart about RAGBRAI, so I’m looking to link up with a couple of folks from the SE PA area to share the cost and the driving duties. I think we are limited to a total of three since that’s what my bike rack can carry and we’ll need some space in the car for a couple of bags each.

Please PM me if any interest.

If you don’t like to drive long distance, you may like to join our team Bike Blue Hens, whose majority of members are RAGBRAI veterans but I’m a 3rd year newbie. We have a bus to take our bike and luggage from Wilmington, DE to Iowa and back. While in Iowa, we’ll have a local driver and mostly likely we’ll have host families on overnight towns. You can choose to ride with the team so to make your daily luggage handle easy or you can just use our bus to transport your bike and luggage to/from Iowa.

If interested, let me know and I’ll get you in touch with the person who is in charge.

Gary —

Thanks – I had no idea something like that was an option. I’d very much like to explore it a bit further, so please let me know who I should contact.

This is my first RAGBRAI, so there’s a lot I need to learn.

Thanks again.

Charlie
