QC Airport

The Quad Cities Bicycle Club provides transportation to and from the only major airport along the Mississippi River, via our QCBC Charter home base in Bettendorf. As long as you are a guest using our charter service, there will not be any extra fee for this service. However reservations must be made well in advance so we have enough volunteers on hand to transport you and your gear the six miles from our Bettendorf home base across the river into southern Moline.

With the charter's packet pickup on Friday afternoon and our deluxe motor coaches pulling out for the starting town by 0700 hrs on the 20th, we recommend you make air travel reservations to arrive in the QC no later than the morning of Friday July 19th.


Your flight home should be arraigned to depart on Sunday the 28th as well. Saturday is normally a 60+ mile day with plenty of climbing, making it difficult for you to be at the airport in time for a Saturday afternoon flight if you use our charter. We do not have a bus back schedule because in order to keep our rates low, our charter busses do not leave the final RAGBRAI river town until every seat on each bus is filled with our guests.

Flights back home from MLI should be scheduled for Sunday, July 28th.
