I checked and all the rental car places in the Quad Cities except for the airport on the south side of Moline close by noon. So you’d have to get to a rental place at “Quad City International Airport”.
You might have ore luck getting a ride to Davenport just 40 miles away to a car rental place at the Quad Cities airport. Rent a car 1-way from there. Plus be specific, are you looking for a ride to O’Hare in Chicago or Minneapolis? Looking for a ride this late will be a problem to specific out of state destinations otherwise. You might have to…[Read more]
You won’t get many or any hits on your post under a discussion topic of “Forum” from 7 years ago. On the right of the main forum page click on the appropriate category first and start a new discussion/subject with “Selling a Week Long Pass (wristband)” instead.
Not your team captain’s fault. That’s the way every team I’ve gone with operates. You get your packet when you show up for RAGBRAI. The cutoff to request a refund from RAGBRAI has passed but it would be your team Captain at your request that would have to file foe that as I recall.
Don’t blame your captain for something you should have read about…[Read more]
Ebikes were just starting to appear in 2019. Their numbers will increase with time.
Some pedal power riders can be a problem or as we use to say in racing circles, more strength then brains. But for the most part while acquiring strength and stamina pedal power riders are also acquiring experience and safe practices when riding at fast speeds.…[Read more]
Those who decided on PB will love it and it is fully immersed in RAGBRAI culture. Plus the in camp music every evening is great. They still include 3 dinners I assume. The shower trucks are top notch. And if you elected the tent service that also include delivering your luggage to the tent and picking it up from the tent each day. So much easier…[Read more]
Exactly right Ken. The last thing RAGBRAI leadership is likely to want is another group appearing with their logo (also protected) exercising editorial content control appearing to be an official RAGBRAI group. I’d remove the logo and remove RAGBRAI from the name.
Caution using anything named RAGBRAI on it as its a protected trademark so the people who control RAGBRAI may not take to any group named RAGBRAI Newbies or other variations. They may see it as trying to officially represent the RAGBRAI organization.
Let’s hope they don’t go with starting corrals like the American Birkebeiner XC Ski race does. They do it because its a timed race and the waves are based on previous finish times. On RAGBRAI this would create riders all bunched up waiting to start each corral. Great if you want to get law suits from anyone who catches COVID during RAGBRAI.
Andrea said they are trying to get the anti-spam software corrected. It had been preventing new discussions for a while which seems fixed now. Maybe some fix also broke this but send the details to Andrea Parrott via a PM
Quakerman, I sent the below to Andrea successfully.
The forum has issues with posting a new discussion under a category. It has open fields for subject and the text but the robot check doesn’t show up and the submit fails to post the new discussion. Quakerman and I have been replying on the RAGBRAI XVLIII – 2021 thread about it. Replies…[Read more]
Quakerman, I tried testing this also and you’re right on the money. It fails to post and the robot check doesn;t show up when attempting the post either. I’ve had success PMing Andrea before directly about issues so I’ll try that hoping it still works. The Robot check apparently only works on a reply.
Quakerman, you are right. There is something wrong with the sub-category currently. Maybe something happened when they added the not-robot spam protection. What works though is clicking on the main category instead, “RAGBRAI XLVIII – 2021”. It will show as a discussion topic and putting “ride to or from” with the location should get more attention…[Read more]
You all will be much more successful finding a ride by posting a NEW-discussion under the “Looking for Rides” topic instead of using this particular general thread. This was about using the topic itself and not meant to be a general thread for rides.
You click on the category “Looking For Rides” under “RAGBRAI XLVIII 2021” and then start a new “…[Read more]
9cent, Your ID might have been hacked. There was a post from it that got deleted that appeared to be spam. Or maybe a reply to a many years old post that is typical of a spam reply post like charmstiffany had posted. Some spammers use phony IDs and some hack existing IDs. They added robot detection now so that should eliminate all automated spam
I was mistaken and 9centschange is a real user at least now. It appeared the ID was deleted and recreated after the spam post. The post that looked like spam though is gone. I wonder if the way they break through is to hack individual IDs and post under legit IDs? Obviously the one posting about live streaming the Masters Golf Tournament after the…[Read more]
