Registration is now closed for RAGBRAI XLIX. Transfers are now open!

Group question

So you need 3 people to create a group. My wife is going but not riding so she will have to get a non-rider pass for support. As of now I am the only one riding for the whole week. We have a couple people riding a day here and there. Question is can day riders be considered as part of a group so we can get the 3 person minimum? I know you vets are out there whats the answer. :)

Thanks Bob

I asked this question a few years ago and was told only 2 are needed for a group including the driver. But your friends going for a few days can sign up for day passes also through the group you create on the RAGBRAI website.

I’m seeking one registered RAGBRAI rider or nonrider to join my group so that my husband and I will have 3 in our group, the required number to be able to purchase an RV pass for the week. Go to “MyRAGBRAI,” click on “join group” and search for “AZ Travelers.” Nothing further asked. Thanks in advanced for consideration.

The first year we went we were three riders and a driver. We registered for the last three days only. They accepted our registration without question. But that was back in 2012, the policy could have changed. You can ask the RAGBRAI info/help desk about this to confirm what the current policy is. They’ve always given me helpful and prompt replies.

Register your dog as a non-rider (assuming you have a pooch).

I already checked with RAGBRAI folks and the minimum is indeed 3, whether day rider or weeklong.

Thanks for the suggestion on tegistering a dog LOL! I will rely on a human to join my group. I need to add an incentive.

I was thinking of just adding one of the kids as a day rider. The dog would make a better story :)
