RAGBRAI is a camping adventure.
NO flush toilets; but there are KYBOS (Porta-Potties) in the camping area. Water may need to be carried in from various distances. Sleep in your own tent that you set up and take down daily.
CVC provides a water and beverage fund with coolers restocked with ice and beverages daily.
Relax under the CVC 20 ft X 30 ft Canopy in a CVC chair (please do not bring your own lawn chairs).
Bring your Solar Shower bag and use the CVC Shower stalls (just take your turn helping put them up or take them down).
Maximum bag weight is 50 lbs so bring multiple bags instead of one huge one. The Charter Workers can leave oversized bags on the truck. CVC has several floor pumps for bike tires in the truck and electric pumps for air mattresses, so please do not bring those. There will be a charging station for all electronic gadgets, so be sure to bring the correct chargers.
Dave Clabby (1996-97 Ragbrai Director) wrote a good 1st RAGBRAI article that tells you most of what you need to know about the CVC RAGBRAI tour/charter. Since it was originally written in 1997, it has been revised somewhat, but the bulk of the explanation is still appropriate.
Here are three good tidbits for what to bring on RAGBRAI.
