I made what might be a rookie mistake and registered as a single. i’m pretty nervous about whether or not i’ll get in so i was wondering how and when they announce the results. i see that people are already posting here about buying wrist bands- is it going to be hard to find a band if i don’t get in the lottery? everything is perfect for me to ride my first ragbrai- fitness, vacation, etc- so i’m going to pray to the band fairy tonight!
almost everyone who registerd gets one,think I heard 96-98% the one looking probably didn’t get registered on time or someone has decided to go with them now. There will probably be plenty fo sale right up to ride time.
The great thing is that if, be some infinitesimal chance, we don’t make the lottery, we’ll have lots of time to make sure we ride. In many ways, the Ragbrai lottery is the inverse of the state lotteries–everyone wins!
