The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

First-timers

This is my first RAGBRAI, where do I get info on all the logistical basics like where do I go in Council Bluffs to start, what type of things should I bring, details about over nighting etc. I don’t even know the questions to ask!

Guinness, you came to the right place with your questions. Start by reviewing RAGBRAI’s General Information.

Once the Overnight towns get their websites up, check them out for local details about camping, entertainment, food, etc.

Look above at ‘Route & Maps’ and then ‘2013 Host Communities’

Basically, just show up and ride. There will be signs everywhere! You won’t get lost! Even if you do, there’s 10,000 people that can tell you where to go!The scary thing is that they’re more than willing to tell you where to go! ….or is that just my normal life?…..
