Main Transportation Staging Point
Our first stop in Chicago will be at the main transportation staging point since this is where most participants will depart.

  • Click Here for more information about the Main Transportation Staging Point.

Departure Using Local Public Transportation
Most CTA L trains and busses and Metra trains will still be departing downtown after our latest possible arrival time, including the walking time from the main transportation staging point to the train station.

However these CTA L and Metra train lines could or definitely will depart Chicago after our estimated arrival time, particularly for RAGBRAI ending towns further away from Chicago, and you should make alternate travel plans accordingly:

Chicago Hotel and Parking Garage Transportation Staging Points

Because the parking garage and Chicago hotel are too far from the main transportation staging point to quickly, easily, or safely transport both your bike and baggage there yourself we will drop off you, your bicycle, and your baggage there directly. You must pre-register to do this otherwise we will drop you off at the main transportation staging point.

After we have dropped off everyone at the main transportation staging point we will drop off people and their bikes and bagage all at the same time at the parking garage and then at the Chicago hotel. The coach bus will not proceed and drop off people at these locations before the moving truck arrives because it can be extremely difficult and take a lot of time to round up everyone back up to drop off their bikes as they get their car, check into the hotel, etc.
