Riverbend Bicycle Club Charter Service Reviews and Comments

Has anybody had any experience with using RBBC charter services. Good, Bad, likes dislikes? I’m riding solo, have my own tent and would charter from Davenport to The start, and use the luggage service.

If not RBBC, any other recommendations for a 1st timer?

I also posted this thread in the Charter section

I don’t know anything about this charter. However, I know that Pork Belly Ventures (PBV) is a great charter. Here is the list of official RAGBRAI charters, check them out!!!! https://ragbrai.com/about/charter-services/

That’s the link I used to find them. Hoping somebody has some experience with them. They look like a very basic service.

The Bicyclists of Iowa City posted in the forums here a couple of days ago that they have spots open. They are a great group of folks to travel RAGBRAI with. This will be our third year with them.

I used them last year. I found a wonderful family atmosphere with this charter. Each night the signs to the camp area were plentiful and clearly directed me to where we were to set up. I was able to charge my phone and electronics no problem. Bags and bikes were handled with care. I’m picky about that. Since I have my own tent and prefer it it was a great first RAGBRAI experience for me.
