HomeRAGBRAI Charter Service


The QCBC RAGBRAI XLVII Charter Service is available for those needing transportation services with one of the longest standing charter providers. RAGBRAI, the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, is a seven-day leisure bicycle ride across the state. Entering its 47TH year, RAGBRAI continues to be the oldest, largest and longest bicycle touring event in the world.

You must be a RAGBRAI TAG applicant in order to use any of the QCBC charter services. Paid in Full reservations are being accepted with proof of your RAGBRAI wristband purchase. If you have yet to receive your weeklong TAG number from RAGBRAI when you register with us, you will need to forward that information after obtaining your official notification on or about May 01st.


The Quad Cities Bicycle Club RAGBRAI Charter provides quiet/family friendly campsites. Our reserved settlements for the week include cold beverages for sale, 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. Last summer we hosted cyclists from thirty (30) different states plus fifteen (15) members of the Toronto, Ontario based Oshawa Cycling Club. We were also honored to host ninety-four (94) first timers in 2018.


Entering our 47th year as hosts, the Quad Cities Bicycle Club RAGBRAI 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 town. 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).



RAGBRAI will tell you that if you’re embarking on your first RAGBRAI, it is best to use an experienced charter service so why not let us handle the daily details for you? We’ll provide this mid-range 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 first responders, veteran and active military personnel - THANK YOU for your service.
