Keith Margavio it is about the same choice either way, whether you drive to Sioux City and long-term park (having a pre-arranged return ride back from Davenport at the end of the week), or whether you park in Davenport and pay for a ride to the beginning town. If you look in this very Forum, you will often see people posting about rides being…[Read more]
It’s getting close to decision time, so if you haven’t already lined up transportation with someone, I would suggest going with Pork Belly Ventures. They have an Easy/West bus that will transport you and your partner on a charter coach AND your bike on a semi trailer from Lansing to Seargent Bluff. pkbelly.com
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!
