RAGBRAI

Clubs/Teams Meeting



Saturday, January 25, 2014
Iowa Events Center
in Downtown Des Moines
3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

You are cordially invited to attend the RAGBRAI/RIDE RIGHT Meeting for Clubs and Teams.  This is the annual January meeting of the RAGBRAI club and team representatives, but interested individuals may attend as well.  The meeting is scheduled for Saturday, January 25, at the Iowa Events Center in downtown Des Moines (730 3rd Street).  The meeting will be from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  and there is no fee to attend this meeting.  Click for directions.

The purpose of the Meeting for Clubs and Teams is to improve safety of the event and to make the ride more enjoyable for all. The meeting will be comprised of presentations as well as a open forum session.  We cannot improve RAGBRAI without the help and input of our clubs and teams. This meeting is an opportunity to express your thoughts and concerns about RAGBRAI. The feedback generated from these meetings will lay the groundwork that can be implemented to make RAGBRAI safer and more enjoyable on the road and in the towns that we visit. It is our hope that you will share this information learned with the rest of your team members.
