RAGBRAI XLII Countdown – July 20-26, 2014
Friends of RAGBRAI

Shop Closed

We are packing up and heading out! The RAGBRAI Web Store is closed for the duration of the ride. We will reopen in early August. In the meantime, visit us at the RAGBRAI merchandise trailers at the Expo in Rock Valley and at each overnight town along the route. The easiest way to return or exchange items is at the merchandise trailers on the ride. All returns or exchanges that have been mailed to RAGBRAI will be completed as soon as possible but it may be as late as the first week of August before we can do so. After the ride, we will be accepting returns and exchanges as usual. Details are on the back of your invoice. Thank you, and our apologies for the inconvenience. We hope you enjoy riding RAGBRAI XLII!
