Friday transportation from Kenosha to Dubuque
You can make your own transportation arrangements or sign up for our $60 motorcoach service and bicycle transportation from right next to the finish location in Kenosha. Just arrive at Kennedy Park before 10 AM. You can leave your car there until you get back after the ride. Wheel & Sprocket will carefully load your bike and your overnight backpack (not a suitcase) in a moving van. You board a comfortable motor coach and relax for the four-hour ride to Dubuque. Remember you may need to ride your bike to your hotel in Dubuque, so we highly recommend you bring a backpack as your overnight bag. If you purchase the transportation option, Wheel & Sprocket will also take your overnight bag back to Kenosha for you.
There will be food and coffee available for purchase at Kennedy Park, with the proceeds from sales going to support the Kenosha Velodrome Association.
When you get to Dubuque, the motor coach will drop you off right on Main Street next to the Holiday Inn Hotel and the Five Flags Theater. Grab your bike from the moving van, put on your overnight backpack and head to your hotel.

Leave it to us, just arrive at Kennedy Park in Kenosha by 10 AM, park your car on the grass, pick up your registration packet, and let Wheel & Sprocket carefully pack your bicycle in a moving van. Then you grab a bite from one of our food vendors while you wait to hop on a comfortable motorcoach bus for the trip to Dubuque.
