RAGBRAI LI Route Announced on Jan. 27!

Looking for a group

Signing up solo and it’s my first time on the ride. Fired up and it’s on my bucket list. Any suggestions for hooking up with a group? Other advice/direction from you experienced riders?

Talk to the people at your local bike shop. They probably know someone who is doing the ride!!!

Where are you coming from and what are you looking for in a group?

There are several teams looking for members if you would like to go with a team. For that matter my small team is not really looking for riders but if you can bring a friend who doesn’t want to ride but is comfortable driving a small motorhome for us we could make room for a couple more…. There are several charters at a wide range of price points if you would like a charter. I tent camped last year for the first time and went with the Riverbend Club Charter, one of the cheapest. You can get a lot more in the way of service and amenities if you pay a lot more but Riverbend did a great job at a great price so you don’t have to pay a lot to get a the peace of mind (for you and for those back home who might worry about you) that a good charter provides. Welcome aboard, you will love it! Good luck with crossing it off your bucket list however, it is famous for being quite addictive.

My group has used Quad Cities Bicycle Club as a charter for several years with good results. We are from Wisconsin. Same basic package the Cedar Valley Cyclists.
