Registration for RAGBRAI XLII is NOW OPEN!



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.  You’ll create a log-in that you can use to register and to check the status of your entry.

Hello out there, I am going to ride this year again for the 5tth time. My first was 2001. In 2001 they presented us with a small book, which described each days ride. It was fun to read and I can still quote some of the days ride descriptions! “You won’t need your Coppochino this morning” ect. about a 3 mile stair case out of town. Can you Please do it again?
Looking forward to seeing my friends from QCBC. Thanks Dennis

First time coming down from rural Ontario Canada to rural Iowa, doing my best to keep up good relations across the northern border. If politicians could get together on long bike rides to make policy decisions…..we would all be better off! Bikes without Borders.
