HI Bobby, this is Ron,
I have experience as bus driver for Team Jackhammer and RV driver for another team 3 years ago. But, your post is confusing. Day Zero is Saturday the 24th, but Thursday is the next day??
Hello, hello! I hope that there is some generous soul who can transport me and my bicycle tonight from Keokuk to Burlington. Already two potential drivers have had to cancel at the last minute (or last day)! I’m leaving my car in Keokuk/Hamilton and want to get back by 9:30 pm to sleep. (309) 868-7522
This is Ron. It’s a circus on wheels, this bike ride is for sure! Glad to hear that you’re having a great time so far. I will send you a private message with my contact information. This sounds like it will be workable for myself and cyclone TS and someone from your team Saturday after the ride to Keokuk.
Cyclone, so you also are driving from Chicago and leaving your car in Burlington? I replied to Stone but have not yet heard back from this person. I will send you a PM with my contact. If you are up to it, I would gladly accept a ride from you Friday night after I park my car in Keokuk. That way, I could get back to Burlington and sleep and be…[Read more]
Have you found transportation yet? If not, contact me. I have replied to another person looking for a ride from Keokuk – Burlington and am waiting for a response. My car can take 4 people & 4 bikes. I will send you a PM with my contact info.
Yes, I’ve heard of them and talked with them. Rode 2016 RAGBRAI and in an overnight town I saw their Ryder-sized box truck emblazoned with full-color wrap on sides & back of truck, Sea to Sea Adventures. I stopped and talked with one of the organizers. That year was their first on RAGBRAI. They are dedicated to breaking the bonds of…[Read more]
If you look at Pork Belly Ventures charter, they transport riders from Omaha Eppley to the start town. Also, pick up riders in end town & transport back to Omaha. Look here: https://pkbelly.com/content/show/91 They’ve been doing RAGBRAI for more than 20 years and they provide top notch service and very comprehensive, too.
The way I did RAGBRAI this year was as an RV driver for the entire week. AND then on the final day, after parking it in the end town, I pedaled from Lansing on the back roads to Waterville & met up with the rest of the riders and joined the huge throng for a fantastic day of two wheeled adventure!
I rode with my brother from Aurora Iowa to Orange City and he dropped me off there, so I do not have my car at the beginning town and don’t need to return there. He will be coming from Northeast Iowa to Lansing to pick me up Saturday afternoon. I do not know if he wants to drive to Orange City because driving from Lansing to his place is only…[Read more]
I sent you a private message, I hope that you received it. Yes, I am willing to take you from Lansing to Orange City! I live locally and hope to be in Orange City late Friday night (I work until 4 pm) or early Saturday (around 11 am to Noon).
The following should be
required for all local food establishments (not taverns, though):
1) All wait staff and all kitchen staff work when RAGBRAI is in town
2) Draw up a RAGBRAI menu of your top 10 dishes from your regular menu
3) Stock up on those items and be prepped and ready to go
Nearly every restaurant I’ve attended in the week of…[Read more]
