Did you lose something on RAGBRAI?


We are currently sifting through the RAGBRAI Lost and Found. If you lost an item on RAGBRAI XLVII and have not yet found it, please send an email to info@ragbrai.com with a description of the item and where it was lost. Be sure to include your name and wristband number. If we have the item, we will return the item to you.  This service is only available to registered riders.

At this point, all bikes and phones have been returned to their owners.

We will continue to receive items found in the overnight and pass-through towns through the end of this month, so check back after September 1 to see if it turned up.

Found a right hand glove – didn’t know where to give it to lost and found. If you have someone with a description, I will mail it to them!

Hi – I found a sock at a laundromat in Ottumwa – it belongs to someone from Ogden (also on RAGBRAI) that I spoke with there. Don’t know the name of the woman at the laundromat, but would be happy to return the sock.

Left a pair of black Giro gloves at the Amish farm where we stopped for lunch. Grilled chicken sandwich on a a homemade roll, blueberry pie and homemade ice cream. Left them on a stump to dry. I figure some Amish teenager is using them when driving his buggy.

I left a small red drawstring bag at the second overnight town at a host home barn. Had some shorts, short and misc stuff in it. Would love to get it back if anyone picked it up.

I lost a pair of perscription sunglasses. Had a Kate Spade case, one half orange color, other half pink.
The sunglasess have a black frame and black lenses, sort of a classical Jackie Onasiss shape.

Since this year was my first time, my first Ragbrai,…i guess I lost my ‘virginity’.

I hope I didn’t offend anyone with that last post.

Lost a pair of XXL red Pearl Izumi (I believe) riding gloves. Worn, so no problem if not found.

A bag of treasure was found near Everybody’s Whole Foods store in Fairfield when RAGBRAI was in town. Perhaps a RAGBRAI rider or supporter left it there?

Here are general descriptions of a dozen items:

hooded sweatshirt
paperboard wall hanging
thin wood wall hanging
framed proverb
metal tray
whisk broom
small tub (for food)
bike tube
eating utensil

with sincere wishes for reunion ~
