RAGBRAI LI Registration is Now Open!

Any Central Iowa teams with room for one more?

I’m interested in joining a laid back team. I got an entry, so now I’m thinking “oh sh*t, how am I gonna pull this off?”

If anyone is looking for members, shoot me an email (lindsaymcatgmail.com) or reply here with your info.

Lindsay- I may know of some options. Do you need transportation there and back? Are you looking for people to ride with that week or in training?

Another option, we are a team based in Des Moines (normally about 12-15 on the team). We usually have riders from throughout the country who meet up in DSM or the start town (some just meet up there depending on their travel). We are ages 25-60 of all riding experiences. We try to stay in host housing all week – its been years since we have camped out. We offer full support in a fun team.

Let me know if you are interested – just send me a private message and I can provide some additional information.

Team Gold Bond has a spot or two left. We are an experienced team leaving out of the Waterloo area. If you are interested give me a call.

We start & stop in downtown DesMoines, are a diverse group but are all laid back.

I live in Ankeny and I am looking for a group to go with this year. I am 59, not a fast rider, kind of laid back. I like to have fun, but not 24 hrs a day for 7 days. I need transportation to and from the start and end. Jim

My name is Ann I am a team leader of Team Mule. We are a team located out of south central iowa. We are still taking on teammates. If you want to check out our team check us out on facebook. We are a second year team and we range in age from early/mid 20′s to mid 30′s. We try and stay either in the camp grounds or at homes along the way. Our bus typically meets us once a day then in the overnight town. We are just a laid back group of riders that just want to have fun. Let me know if you would be interested in riding with us. FYI our fee is $200/person plus a case of beer or $350 for a married couple and a case of beer. Just respond by email at the address below or find us on facebook if your interested and want to check us out “Team Mule”. Just so you know most of us know each other through ragbrai last year so new people fit right in with the group.
