QCBC RAGBRAI XLV Charter Service
Jul 23-29 2017
As long as you are a guest, our Host Hotel provides transportation to and/or from our airport.
The Quad Cities Bicycle Club also provides transportation to and from the only major airport along the Mississippi River, via our QCBC Charter home base in Bettendorf. As long as you are a guest on our charter service, there is NO CHARGE for this service. However reservations must be made well in advance so we have enough volunteers on hand to transport you and your gear the six miles.
With the charter's packet pickup on Friday afternoon and our deluxe motor coaches pulling out for the starting town by 0700 hrs. on the 22nd, we recommend you make air travel arrangements to arrive in the QC no later than the morning of Friday July 21st.
Your flight home should be arraigned to depart on Sunday the 30th as well. Saturday is a 45 mile day with lots of climbing and a 3 hour min. bus ride back to the QC, making it difficult for you to be at the airport in time for a Saturday afternoon flight if you use our charter. We do not have a bus back schedule because in order to keep our rates low, our charter busses do not leave the final RAGBRAI day river town until every seat on each bus is filled with our guests. Flights back home should be scheduled for Sunday, July 30th.
