You will have the opportunity to apply for housing with the overnight towns after May 1.  You will need to be registered before April 1 and have your wristband number when applying.  You will not be guaranteed housing but the towns will do the best they can to fill as many requests as they can.  RAGBRAI is mainly a camping event and there is free camping in the RAGBRAI campground for all registered riders
