Hi Phil,
I was planning to drive to Moline to pick up my rental SUV. But I might be interested in a ride there (will pay for gas and tolls, of course) and back. Where in Chicago are you? I’m in Oak Park.

*and parking, too.

I am in Palatine. But I would be at O’Hare as I work there and would normally leave early / mid afternoon from around there. Can you get a ride to O’Hare? If not I could come to Oak Park. Fairly close.

I should be able to get to ORD with bike and bag no problem. If I can’t, we’re right off the Ike in Oak Park. So it would be too far out of your way. But I’ll try to meet you at the airport.

Figure on me just picking you up on Friday in Oak Park. That is a quick ride from O’Hare. And let’s move this to a text: 630-363-4955. Thanks. Phil.

Hi Phil,

It sounds like you already found someone to take you up on this, but if there’s still availability, let me know. I also live in Oak Park, and I’m currently considering riding back from Davenport. Number 322401, but would be curious about a ride if that’s an option.

I have. And my car is pretty small and my rack does not do well with more that two bikes…but if UncleRico backs out, I will let you know for sure.

Thanks, Phil. Got your text. I’ll be in touch and provide updates.

Austin: my car just freed up as uncle Rico just backed out. If you’re still looking for a ride to from Davenport, lmk. Text is best at 630-363-4955

Getting this to the top again…
Offer is open again for anybody heading to Ragbrai #50 on Friday – and riding the full week.
I have one spot available in my car for the round trip.

Hi Phil,

I realize this is late-in-coming, but if there’s still space for a ride back to Chicago, I’d be interested. I crashed during the storm last night and will not be able to get back to Oak Park as I planned.

If this option is still open, let me know. My cell is 775-233-1266.
