A Reminder About RAGBRAI Registration

The deadline for online week-long registration is Saturday, April 1. You must have your entry submitted and payment made by April 1, don’t wait until after the lottery to submit your payment. If you are unsure of the status of your registration, you can check on that by logging on to RAGBRAI.com, select My RAGBRAI, go to My Profile, then select the Registration Status tab. If you have not yet made payment select ‘Pay Now’ to submit payment.  Use the My RAGBRAI option to navigate the registration site.

If you are a group contact, and your group contains weeklong riders, your group must be closed and finalized by the April 1 deadline. Even though everyone in your group may have paid as individuals, you will still need to close your group to have it included in the lottery.

Lottery results will be posted on May 1. We will begin sending the wristband packages around mid-June.

If you have any questions about creating a user account or submitting your registration, please contact us at info@ragbrai.com.  Please don’t wait until the last minute as we will not have staff available on Saturday April 1 to answer your questions.

Thanks, and we will see you in July!

The RAGBRAI staff

So, if you are only riding a few days, you can register later? What is the deadline date for a partial week?

Tom – yes we do need the minor waivers in by 4/1. If you’re having problems please email info@ragbrai.com and Mariah will help you out.

Mark – yes if you are getting day passes you have until June 1 to register online. After that we will sell day passes in the merchandise trailers and the baggage truck on the ride.

every registrant needs to register on their own (as there is a waiver involved) and have an email… You can easily sign up for a free one at a variety of online places (gmail, yahoo, etc)
