How much do you guys spend when you ride for a week?
I'd love to do it sometime soon....just don't have the time now.
The first year I rode we didn't register and rode with 4 college guys and my dad. Switched off driving a van for support and bought cold meat, chips and beer at the local grocery stores. Probably made the whole week for about $150 and that's with putting in gas money.
7 ... or is it 8? Ragbrais later I paid $120 for our "team fee" .. covers bus gas money, bus vehicle registration, with extra going to some community beer and chips etc. Then if you register (I have 3 or 4 out of my 7 or 8 rides) its an additional $100. Then if you want to go to the beer gardens beers are like $3 ... and if you eat food from the vendors its like carnival food prices ... so I probably blew like $100 - $200 for food and beer.
I'd estimate I spent about $450 last year total, but then again I make a lot more than I did in college
All this talk about "only riding 1 or 2 days" or "biking half days and riding in a van the rest of the way" seems kind of lazy, I would never do that. BTW, are mopeds allowed?
There was a guy a couple years back that attached a little motor and spinwheel to his back tire ... you heard him from a mile a way. He'd motor up hills and down (from what we could tell it was constant speed).
Everybody would boo him as he went past at 20mph while we chugged up a hill manually much slower.
