Hi Dixon


A big thanks to you for your countless hours you and the team invested to make this another successful RAGBRAI.


Though the south route was more difficult for me the camps you found for us were outstanding.  Every year I meet a few more people who join the group and though I grumbled I will not come back if the route is south again I know I will.  It's the smaller club atmosphere where everyone is genuinely happy and willing to help another rider.

Hats off to the behind-the-scenes crew who lugged baggage, bikes and set up camp each day.  What an amazing group of people.  

I wish I had the ability to participate in more QCBC functions but being in Chicago suburb squashes that.


Well done!  I will be back.

Hi Dixon,


I just wanted to thank you and your QCBC team for another great experience on RAGBRAI 2019. Great attention to detail including the charging stations, kybos, road signs and luggage service. All the staff had positive attitudes and were very helpful.


Best Regards,

QCBC members and organizers,


Many thanks for yet another FANTASTIC, well organized year.  I don’t know how you do it – but you do keep getting better every year. Shady spots to camp, close to showers, toilets, busses, ice cold beer and beverages, charging facilities.  Amazing how many more people we keep meeting every year with absolutely amazing stories and history.  Even though we are almost 1000 kilometers away, it feels like we have made many new friends. So nice to see familiar, friendly faces on this epic ride.  Your organization from registration, loading, to packed pickup to getting us back to Bettendorf is FIRST CLASS.  Thank you for all the hard work, hours at the computer, slugging, etc.

Hi Dixon,


Hope all is well and that everything for RAGBRAI went according to plan.  I know several people who rode the full week and they only had good things to say.  My friend, Richard Lotz, rode with QCBC (his first time on RAGBRAI) and though worried about the crowds before the ride, he had a great time and QCBC took excellent care of him.


I am about to be on an Iowa adventure of my own... as I am moving to Cedar Rapids at the end of this month!  So I just wanted to check in and see if you were able to resell my RAGBRAI and/or QCBC credentials.  Let me know whenever you get a chance and also if a forwarding address is needed for anything.  I will be here in Galesburg until the last week of August (I think) but I will be in Iowa after that.  I will change my address in the QCBC database as soon as I am in Iowa.


Anyway, thanks for any and all help - past, present, future...  Please let me know of any problems, questions, news, etc.


Best to you and all there,


Bob Lovejoy

Thanks for another great RAGBRAI.  The QCBC Charter service did a great job.


As I mentioned to you yesterday we left our bike computers on the chargers Friday night not realizing that the truck would be gone so early.   I talked to the guy at the truck yesterday at the Isle of Capri and he said he left them on a mat or something in Burlington and he thinks you should have them.


We had three items left on the chargers.  2 Garmin Bike Computer with the initials S-N and L-H-N on the backs and the charger.  We also had one battery pack and its charger.


Hopefully you have these.  If you let us know we can come and pick them up at your convenience.

Dear Dixon,

Matt & I wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into the QCBC 2018 RAGBRAI Charter Service. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience, thanks in large part to the tremendous efforts of the QCBC. We are hoping to be able to take part again in the next RAGBRAI, along with some other friends/relatives who are now excited about partaking in the experience after hearing about ours.

Thanks again, see you in 2019!

Hi Dixon


Many thanks for the RAGBRAI charter refund.
I know it was another task layered on a hundred others for RAGBRAI so I am particularly grateful for your help.

May the wind be at your back,

Thanks, Dixon.

I and my riding buddies Phil and Rita thoroughly enjoyed our first RAGBRAI. I've been telling everyone here what a great experience it was. I still have my RAGBRAI and QCBC bracelets on! Can't bear to take them off yet. My wife and sister keep kidding me about it, "What Bill, do you think they're still riding up there and you can just go up and rejoin them? Hahaha"

I thought QCBC did a great job. The only thing I would have liked improved was signs leading us the QCBC campsite in town. Two or 3 days we had a hard time finding the campsite.

Thanks for your efforts and hope to see you on a future ride!

Thank you so much for your guidance and direction of the Ragbrai portion of the QCBC. Evan, Colin, and I had a great time. The camp was smooth as ever. I can't imagine the hours you've spent with the little details but we appreciate it. Finally it was great seeing you out on two wheels again. Have a great rest of the summer.
