CHARTER REGISTRATION

The Q.C.B.C. is sanctioned by The Des Moines Register and RAGBRAI but is the only charter service providing this opportunity for our members and guests since 1973, each and every RAGBRAI.
The Quad Cities Bicycle Club has also participated in every Iowa's Ride since its inception. 

The Q.C.B. C. Charter Service registration is available from November 01 through May 01, 2021 or sooner if we sell out that particular charter.

The following registration steps below should be performed on a desktop or laptop to prevent any frustrations, the sites are not smart phone and tablet friendly.

Carefully read our instructions and charter options before registering.

The QCBC Charter Service includes the following options for your package:

  • Bus Out (Quad Cities to your bicycle tour Starting Town) includes one (1) seat on a Luxury Motor Coach as well as transporting your bicycle & gear. Our Bus Out always starts in the Quad Cities - Bettendorf and includes free parking in our designated lot. NOTE: our charter does not start in the ending town.
  • Weeklong Camping/Baggage Service includes the daily transport of your two (2) bags from town to town throughout the week, with reserved quiet campsites and our camp canteen with cold beverages each night.
  • Bus Back (Clinton back to the Quad Cities - Bettendorf) includes one (1) seat on a Luxury Motor Coach as well as transporting your bicycle & gear. This bus will return to our original loading location/host hotel.  

Everyone is required to register for our charter service separately. Due to the waiver process, only one entry per person. 

If you are scheduled to fly out of the Quad Cities Airport (MLI), it is highly encouraged to reserve any flight home for the Sunday following your bicycle tour.

 

No mailings please, all our charter guests are required to have access to an email address. Each person must fill out a separate form. Our charter service will only be available until May 01, 2020. Don’t delay in registering with the QCBC as we will close the charter after our final bus seat is filled.



  

RAGBRAI XLVIII

July 2021

SERVICES & cOSTS


CLUB MEMBERS - When you register for your RAGBRAI TAGs, apply for them as a member of the Quad Cities Bicycle Club #61 so they will be sent to us in bulk and distributed during the Friday evening packet pickup/bike loading


NON-MEMBERS - When you apply for your RAGBRAI TAGs, obtain them as an individual so they will be mailed to you prior to your arrival. 

The Quad Cities Bicycle Club includes the following services in our charter packages:


Bus Out - 
Quad Cities to LeMars on Saturday July 24th includes one (1) seat on a Luxury Motor Coach as well as transporting your bicycle & two bags of gear to our campsite. 
You will be required to ship your bicycle to the starting town yourself if you are unable to load your bicycle during the Friday PM check in - bike loading.


Week-long Camping/Baggage Service includes the daily transport of your two (2) bags (40 lbs. max each) from town to town throughout the week, with reserved quiet campsites, private sanitation units and our canteen with cold beverages for sale in camp each night. 


Bus Back - Clinton to the Quad Cities on Saturday July 31st includes one (1) seat on a Luxury Motor Coach as well as transporting your bicycle & gear. We do not have a bus back schedule because in order to keep our rates low, our charter buses do not leave the final river town until every seat on each bus is filled with our guests. This bus will return to our original loading location/host hotel – the Isle Bettendorf. 

It is highly encouraged to reserve any flight home for Sunday, August 01st.
