There is a $25 processing fee per participant for registration refunds. After May 15, all registration fees are non-refundable. Email us at email@example.com to request your registration refund. Your refund will be sent to you in the form of a refund check. If you are in a group, check with your group contact first. Many times, the group contact will know of someone to purchase your wristband credentials. Only individuals or the group contact can request a registration refund. The group contact can request that a member’s refund check be sent to them or directly to the group member.
After May 15, you will be able to transfer your wristband credentials to someone else if you are not able to attend. The wristband packets will be sent to the original participant in June. The transfer of wristband credentials and money is between the two parties involved. We will have our online transfer form on our website in June for the new owner to transfer the wristbands to their name. The wristbands must be transferred to the new owner before the ride. You can post wristbands for sale on our RAGBRAI forum.
Wristband and merchandise packets:
Your wristband and merchandise packet will be mailed to you by priority mail in June if you registered by April 1. If you registered for day passes after April 1 your packet will be mailed to you before the ride. If you are a member of a group, your wristband and merchandise packet will be mailed to the group contact of your group. We will hold all international packets for pick up at the expo.
