During the Week
and Bubba's Pampered Pedalers • Registration
We will only be offering transportation services between downtown Chicago
and the start and end of RAGBRAI. We will not be offering any other services
during the week of RAGBRAI itself such as baggage transportation between
overnight towns or private reserved camping areas.
Instead, we have partnered with Bubba's
Pampered Pedalers to provide these daily services to our participants
during the week. Bubba's
Pampered Pedalers is an official RAGBRAI charter and offers the premier
PAMPERING service available on RAGBRAI. We will get you to and from RAGBRAI
while Bubba's PAMPERED
Pedalers will allow you to ride your bike while they do ALL the work.
