RAGBRAI® TRANSPORTATION
Arrival in Chicago

Main Transportation Staging Point Chicago Hotel Transportation Staging Point


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

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

Parking
After we arrive back in Chicago you will need to walk or bike over to the parking garage, pick up your car, and drive back over to the the main transportation staging point to pick up your bicycle and baggage. Directions and a map will be provided. There will be plenty of time to do this since the parking garage is very close to the main transportation staging point and we will watch your bike and/or bag while you do so.

Departure Via Local Public Transportation
All 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.

Chicago Hotel Transportation Staging Point
Because the Chicago hotel is too far from the main transportation staging point to quickly, easily, or safely transport both your bike and baggage from main transportation staging point yourself we will have an additional transportation staging point directly there. You must pre-register to use our Chicago hotel transportation staging point otherwise you must use the main transportation staging point.

After all participants and their baggage have been unloaded from the coach bus at the main transportation staging point it will proceed over to the Chicago hotel where all remaining participants and their baggage will be dropped off.

You will need to wait for us to finish unloading all bicycles at the main transportation staging point to proceed over to the Chicago hotel to drop off all remaining bicycles. You will be able to leave your baggage secure inside the hotel and the hotel staff can watch it as we unload and return your bicycle.
