The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

Riding from Keokuk to Davenport

Me and my friend are planning on riding the full week of RAGBRAI, and since there are no airports near Keokuk we are going to ride self supported to Davenport.

Our plan is we ship an empty box and prepaid label to Keokuk so that when we get in on Saturday, we can put our bags and dirty clothes into the box and ship them home so we don’t have to carry them self supported. Then we spend Sunday and Monday riding to Davenport and camping along the way, and when we get to Davenport we box our bikes at the shop and ship them home. Finally, get a hotel for the night and fly out Tuesday.

Does this sound realistic? And would anybody be up to join us?

Jason,

Burlington (Friday overnight) has an airport. There are fights to Chicago and St Louis on Saturday and Sunday. Contact Bike Burlington or Tyler Bickel and Bickel’s Bicycle in Burlington about catching a ride from Keokuk back to Burlington. Bike Burlington charters a bus for Ragbrai but they won’t know if they will have any open seats until closer to July. If they end up with all seats full, send me a private message and I can get you back to Burlington. This would be easier than riding to Davenport unless you want to get the extra miles in.

See you in July

Jay
