RAGBRAI® TRANSPORTATION
Lansing


We are VERY concerned about our ability to depart the ending town of lansing in a reasonable amount of time.

Approximately 20,000 people will be coming into a town of only 1,000 and there will only be 2 roads coming into and out of town from the north (Iowa Hwy. 26) and west (Iowa Hwy. 9). In addition, the road from the into town south (River Rd./Front St.) will not be available since it will be used for the main RAGBRAI cycling route. This all boils down to the likelihood of a traffic jam of unbelievable historic proportions getting into and out of town.

In town, Main St./Iowa Hwy. 9 will be also be closed from 3rd St. to Front St. which will effectively prohibit any type vehicular traffic within the town itself. This will severely impact your ability to transfer your baggage from the RAGBRAI main baggage drop off area or other charter services to our staging location.

Please note that these logistic constraints will affect every RAGBRAI rider, not just us.

As a result of this situation, we recommend in the strongest possible way NOT to make any type of personal travel plans on the evening of Saturday July 29th because we cannot guarantee what time we will actually arrive back in Chicago.

We will have two baggage pick up locations set up both at the RAGBRAI baggage truck and also at Bubba’s Pampered Pedalers in Waukon the morning of Saturday, July 29th. Depending on your personal plans, it may be much, much easier for you to drop off your baggage with us in Waukon instead of transporting it across Lansing.

We will be set up accepting baggage at both locations until 8:00 am when the RAGBRAI baggage truck departs. We will also unload your baggage in Lansing so you will still be able to access your personal items there (shower stuff, car keys, book for the ride home, etc.)

If you are not using the RAGBRAI baggage truck or Bubba’s Pampered Pedalers to transport your baggage during the week of RAGBRAI, it is very important that you check where your staging locations will be in Waukon and Lansing and determine the easiest way for you to get your baggage to us, either in Waukon or Lansing.
