RAGBRAI is a 7-day party on 2 wheels that takes you across the state of Iowa. Much like BRAG, the ride stops in a different town each day. It's an amazing experience, but can be a logistical headache.
That's why BRAG is taking you from Georgia all the way to Sergeant Bluff, Iowa to participate in RAGBRAI without any worries or too much planning on your part.
BRAG does all the heavy lifting and figuring out. The party can start as soon you hop on the BRAG Bus in Atlanta. We take care of the logistics so that you can focus on riding bikes and having a blast with the 10,000 other cyclists.
Departing from Atlanta Friday, July 22, arriving Saturday, July 23. First day of riding Sunday, July 24. Departing for Atlanta on July 30, and arriving in Atlanta on Sunday, July 31.
What is included in the cost?
You. You A Ride to Iowa (and Back!)
Once you're on the bus, just relax, chat with buddies, grab a cold drink, or catch a few ZZZ's... We are doing all the driving!
The BRAG Bus picks up you, your bike, and your bags at the Acworth Park & Ride and drives you to Sergeant Bluff, Iowa. After 7 days of cycling across Iowa, we'll drive you back to Atlanta from Lansing, IA.
It's a long, long, long drive on a school bus so bring everything you need to be as comfortable as possible. But after 19 hours you'll be ready to get off the bus I assure you!
We have 3 rotating staff drivers to get you to Iowa and back safely on the air-conditioned BRAG Bus.
Whether flying or driving, gas is spendy right now and this is a deal! Other services cost about $160 each way from the closest airport.
Tents and air mattresses are provided for your comfort. We'll pack & set up your tent, plus carry your bags to the next town while riding your bike.
You place your bags on the bus each morning, and you'll find them in your tent the following afternoon. No searching for bags for hours like with other charters.
Start each day off right with freshly brewed hot coffee provided by BRAG. After your ride, enjoy frosty drinks & snacks!
Free Skip Day Shuttle
Free skip-over rides on the BRAG Bus to the next town if you don't feel like riding that day. Skip-over days typically run $25 - $50 with other RAGBRAI services.
