Being you are going from/to airports your best but not cheap option is going to be 1-way car rentals. The odds of finding anyone wanting to go to Hawaii from those 2 towns and is on RAGBRAI, not great.

To Onawa you’d rent 1-way to the Sioux City (Sergeant Bluff) airport. After dropping off your gear at camp early Saturday you get ride-ready and drive back to the airport with your bike and ride back the 32 miles after dropping the car.

On the Davenport side someone would have to get to the Enterprise car rental before noon to pick up the car. The only car rental place in Davenport open on Saturday has limited hours, 9-12. Of course you can leave RAGBRAI a day early and do the same in Iowa City. Not sure how your shipping the bikes though.

Yeah, it costs a bit. But RAGBRAI will be such a good time you’ll think it cheap at twice the price.

Might be able to get you from Davenport to Chicago. I’m hoping to camp in Davenport Saturday night to hit the road Sunday morning. Does that work? PM me and we can work out details.

Jon –
I can help if you still need it – but only on the Davenport to Chicago side. This is my first Ragbrai and I plan on doing the whole route. I am from the Chicago area and my wife is planning on driving me to the quad cities early on Day 0 (or maybe the day before) and then picking me up again on the following Saturday afternoon when we are done. PM me if you are interested. Or if you want to just touch base and keep it an option, that is fine too. Phil.
