Iowa Valley Bicycle Club RAGBRAI® Charter 

The Iowa Valley Bicycle Club is located in Marshalltown, Iowa and we have around 150 members. Marshalltown is located in the center of the state of Iowa. We are an official RAGBRAI® Charter and we host as many as110 riders each year. With one or two air-conditioned tour buses and a 55’ semi-truck we carry all the riders, their bikes, and gear to the start town and return them from the finish town. We also have a 24’ Ryder rental truck and two drivers that carry our gear from campsite to campsite throughout RAGBRAI. We have a scout and scout vehicle that go to the next overnight town each night and is there first thing the next morning to secure our next campsite. Other services and amenities include: four pop-up canopies for shade, two portable toilets, plastic patio type chairs, air pumps and other bike tools for minor repairs, electronic device charging station, iced water cooler, and coolers of various types of pop and sport drinks. At no charge, rider’s autos can be parked at the Community College in Marshalltown for the entire week (the parking lot at the college is where we depart and return). We have over thirty years experience in providing this charter service and we specialize in helping first time riders. Our riders come from all over the U. S. and Canada; we are a family oriented team, and we have a great time! Those organizing and operating the charter are all volunteers, and any money we make goes to supporting bicycling interest and activities in our community. Come join us!
