Charter Service Home

RAGBRAI, the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, is a seven-day bicycle ride across the state. Entering its 46TH year, RAGBRAI continues to be the oldest, largest and longest bicycle touring event in the world.

You must be the recipient of, or a RAGBRAI TAG applicant in order to utilize any aspect of our charter service.

The Quad Cities Bicycle Club RAGBRAI Charter provides quiet/family friendly campsites. Our reserved campsites for the week include cold beverages for sale, multi- tier charging stations, floor pumps, basic tools and our camp's own private, portable sanitation units (KYBOS) in-camp at each overnight town.

Our charter service members and guests are far from being local. Last summer we hosted cyclists from thirty-two (32) different states plus a Canadian couple - hey Richard & Melissa. We were also honored to host ninety-four (94) first timers in 2017.

Entering our 46th 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 designated 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. After completing the bike tour in Davenport, you will ride along the Mississippi River another four (4) miles back to Bettendorf where you will have your choice of three (3) interstates to take you back home. If you are flying in, our host hotel provides transportation to and 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.
