RAGBRAI XLVIII Charter service july 24, 2021
The QCBC RAGBRAI Charter Service is available for our Members and Guests needing transportation services with the longest standing RAGBRAI charter provider. The Quad Cities Bicycle Club is the only charter to service all forty-seven (47) previous events.
We will be providing Full Service RAGBRAI Charter in 2021 - Bus Out to LeMars on Saturday July 24th, our award winning weeklong camp/baggage support then Bus Back service from Clinton to Bettendorf for RAGBRAI XLVIII.
The QCBC Charter Services are available for both club members and non-members.
NOTE, there are no service fees for club members when registering for their charter or any club event through our new Club Express online services. Non-members would be charged service fees above the additional non-member charter pricing.
Should this event be canceled or postponed for any reason, your charter fees would be refunded to you 100%. Although this DOES NOT INCLUDE the minimal QCBC club membership fee nor the non-member service fees initiated by Club Express.
You must be an official TAG applicant in order to use any of the QCBC charter services. Paid in Full reservations are being accepted with proof of your wristband purchase. If you have yet to receive your weeklong TAG number when you register with us, you will need to forward that information after obtaining your official notification.
The Quad Cities Bicycle Club Charter provides quiet/family friendly campsites. Our reserved settlements for the week include cold beverages, several multi-tier charging stations, floor pumps, basic tools and our own private, portable sanitation units (KYBOS) in-camp at each overnight town. Our charter maximum is 350 cyclists.
Our charter members and guests are far from being local. During our last RAGBRAI we hosted cyclists from thirty-two (32) different states plus ten (10) members of the Toronto, Ontario based Oshawa Cycling Club and two more foreign nationals from Great Britain. We were also honored to host seventy-three (73) first timers in 2019.
Entering our 48th year as weeklong hosts, the Quad Cities Bicycle Club Charter Service will once again begin and end in the Quad Cities. Leave your vehicle in our local complimentary covered parking area and enjoy your “car free” vacation knowing you do not have to hassle with finding parking at either the beginning or ending towns. We’ll then transport you and your gear back to the Quad Cities where you will have your choice of three (3) interstates to take you back home. If you are flying in, our host hotel provides free transportation from our own Quad City International Airport (MLI).
If you’re embarking on your first weeklong cycling tour, it is best to use an experienced charter service so why not let us handle the daily details for you? We’ll provide this service for you at costs well below your budget. If you are joining us alone or with a group, you will feel welcome in our charter knowing that our veteran crew and cyclists will be looking out for you. Through our own unique wrist bands, you’ll be able to recognize fellow QCBC charter guests out on the road, always willing to lend a hand, inner tube or a smile to make your vacation with us a calendar event for years to come.
Welcome all front line heroes, first responders, veteran and active military personnel - THANK YOU for your service.
While we are unable to provide our charter service for IOWA'S RIDE, we whole heartily wish our friends TJ, Scott and company the best of luck in their groundbreaking fundraising event.
