I may be able to help. We have a charter bus leaving from St. Louis Saturday morning. Would you need a ride back to St. Louis after Ragbrai?

That would be great! I won’t need a ride back since I will be meeting up with family, only a ride there.

Hi! Would you be able to send me an email if there’s still the possibility of catching a ride from St. Louis? My email address is pope.ellie@gmail.com. Thank you!

Devon, I live south of St. Louis, what is the cost to ride your charter bus from St. L to CB and back. Do you have parking in S. L?

We have a charter bus leaving STL Saturday July 20th. Then one headed back from Keokuk to STL on July 27th. The rides are $125 each way, including you, your luggage, and bike transportation. Please let me know if you are interested. Thank you!

Hi Ellie. I’m planning on leaving St. Charles, MO on Friday (midday-ish) in a 29ft RV. I have no passengers yet as of this date. I have a bike rack that’ll carry two for the RV’s receiver hitch. I’m only hauling one bike on the rack. I will be stopping somewhere near Keokuk to pick up my brother, who will be beaching his vehicle there for the week. My brother has signed up to be our RV driver for the week. We have a small group of 4 riders. My current plan is to push all the way to Council Bluffs on Friday where we’ll meet the rest of the group, knowing know that this’ll make for a pretty late arrival. You’re welcome to catch a ride if we can work out timing/logistics. Send a reply if I can help. Please note that I don’t check in on the RAGBRAI site very often, but now that I’ve typed this, I’ll try to check back a bit more frequently. – Karl

Hi Ellie – I am in STL and need a ride too, so piggypacking on your post. Not sure if the folks you may be riding with have extra room for another and a bike. I can’t seem to post correctly to get the ask out there, and not sure why but nonetheless no lol Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I have no confirmation message(s) from Ellie yet, so I don’t know any more than what follows. I still plan to leave St. Charles mid-day on Friday pushing through to Council Bluffs yet Friday night. As of now, I’m alone with just my bike in a 29ft RV as far as Keokuk where I will pick up my brother, who is the RV driver for our group of 4 riders for the week and will ride with me to Council Bluffs. From Keokuk to Council Bluffs we are just us two and the one bike. The bike rack on the RV hitch can hold two bikes, so there is one open slot there. If really needed, I could strap a second old/crappy bike rack ( for 2 more bikes ) on the nose of the RV. – Karl

Devon, hey. Do you guys still have room for a rider, bike and gear to Council Bluffs on Saturday? What time do you plan on leaving and from where? Do let me know, thanks.



Simonne Meszaros, July 11, 2019 at 9:55 pm

Thanks Karl. I’m trying to figure out what day I can leave, not sure I can get away Friday yet. If I can, I wouldn’t mind riding with you up there. Can we chat? You can send me a note at gcartandyoga@gmail.com

Do you still need a ride?


Simonne Meszaros, July 13, 2019 at 7:58 pm

Yes I do, Ricky. What day are you leaving?


Ricky Armstrong, July 14, 2019 at 4:51 pm

I have space if you need a ride
