The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

Want to join a team that camps (I already have a camper)

This will be my third year riding ragbrai. I have been with two different teams that I enjoyed and made some memories. This year I’m looking to rent a camper and have 4 family members join me. I would love to join a team that allows outsiders in a camper 🙂 IS this even possible or does it exist?

Define camper? You mean an RV, or a pop up that requires towing? If it requires towing are you asking someone to tow it for you? I’m so confused. Either way I’m sure it is possible on Ragbrai and someone will allow it. The 2nd year I went we had two full RV’s about 10+ people, we camped together every night, just parked next to each other. The next year we had one RV and a pop up towed camper.

Just need to make it work. I will let you know once I have my plans secured. I am either using a charter and tent camping or will be an RV with a team.

Hi Kicks9
Sorry for the confusion. Let me clarify that I would be renting an RV so I wouldn’t need any towing capability. My mom and aunt would actually be driving the RV. Since it’s their first time doing so I thought it would be easier on them to be connected with a team who knows the ropes. Look forward to hearing more from you. Thanks for your reply.

It is my preferred way to do Ragbrai. I will keep watch on this thread and once I know if we are doing an RV or not I will let you know. Sounds like my time will be too big for everyone to sleep in the RV, so some will tent camp, but still stay together. Nice to have your own truck with supplies etc…

Where are you coming from?

I’ll be coming from the quad cities. I live in Wisconsin but RV will be in Davenport.
