The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa


Introducing the RAGBRAI XLVII Logo!

Look what blew into town! It’s the brand new RAGBRAI 2019 XLVII logo! If you join us on our ride across the state next year, you’ll be sure to see welcoming Iowans, lots of farmland and… well you’ll just have to watch the video to find out. And be sure to take a close look at the logo, as there are a few hidden surprises.

Love the new logo? Head over to and check out our brand new RAGBRAI XLVII merchandise including comfy sweatshirts, long sleeved shirts, and more to come soon.

And don’t forget – RAGBRAI XLVII registration opens November 15th at

Any chance 2019 will be the year you finally offer recumbent style jerseys?

You must have several hundred (maybe a thousand or more?) recumbent cyclists each year, and regular jerseys with pockets on the back are of no use to us. You could offer a cheaper jersey with no pockets or, preferably, a proper recumbent jersey with front or side pockets.

How about it RAGBRAI? I know folks have been raising this since at least 2017.

Both logos have the sun at our backs. East to West for the first time?

I most forgot, the tail of the windmill is the shape of Iowa with a start in the middle. Des Moines is not out of range for a southern route so maybe we’re going back there.

Maybe the three stars after the Roman numerals means that the route will follow Rte. 3.
