Each year these shops have their repair vans on the bike route taking care of the riders. Other than RAGBRAI, the bike shops are the only vendors with permission to sell official RAGBRAI t-shirts and other RAGBRAI mementos. If you need help to prepare for RAGBRAI, any of these shops will be happy to assist you.
The Official RAGBRAI® Bicycle Shops will be providing daily copies of the Des Moines Register for RAGBRAI participants and residents of the host communities.
Remember to wear your helmet whenever you are on a bike and always RIDE RIGHT!
