We are excited to open registration for the oldest, longest and largest recreational bicycle tour in the world. We hope that you will join us July 20-26, 2014 for our 42nd ride experiencing that unmatched Iowa hospitality and homemade goodness that is RAGBRAI.
Registration is now open for RAGBRAI XLII, an event that will surely add to your cycling memories!
If you are new to RAGBRAI, welcome! You can create your profile on entries.ragbrai.com. Click on “Create a profile,” which is the first step towards submitting a RAGBRAI entry.
