RAGBRAI XLIX registration is now open!

Campground etiquette

  • 2 May, 2009

A bike for 5 riders sits outside tents at the main campsite in Harlan during the 2008 ride.

RAGBRAI participants are guests everywhere they go and should treat their hosts with respect. Make sure YOU are a good guest!

  • Keep the campground quiet.
  • Most riders want to get a good night’s sleep. Please – no noise after 9:00 pm.
  • Don’t be a litter-bug.
  • Pick up your own trash in the campground and along the way.
  • Respect the property of others.
  • Don’t damage fences and crops, and leave campgrounds in better condition than you find them.
  • Camp only where directed.
  • Local communities go to a great deal of effort to set up the campgrounds. Groups or individuals who camp outside the designated areas create problems for them.
  • Enjoy RAGBRAI and enjoy Iowa!

These suggestions have been prepared by The Des Moines Register and the League of Iowa Bicyclists.
