Hey all – I’ve got quite a few requests for instructions on how to post to the forums. So I thought I would post it here in case it can help someone.
To post to the forum you’ll need to log in to your RAGBRAI.com account. As a side note, this is separate to your account you created to register on Enmotive.com. I’m sorry I know this is counterintuitive but the two sites just don’t “talk to” each other. So please don’t worry if you log in to RAGBRAI.com and don’t see your registration. OR if you try to log in with your EnMotive info and it doesn’t work.
So you log in, and head here to RAGBRAI.com/forums. Then you’ll want to click on the Category you want to post in – look on the right hand side of the page under the Charter Services picture. I’m guessing you’ll want RAGBRAI XLIX – 2022. Then it will take you to a new page. Scroll to the bottom of THAT page and you’ll see a text box where you can create your post. Don’t worry this post will also show up on the main Forums home page as well as in the category.
That should be it! Please let me know if you have questions about any of the above 😊
I will add buy/sell wristband transfer topics after June 1 when wristband numbers have been assigned. NOTE I HAD PREVIOUSLY SAID MAY 1 BUT I WAS WRONG. IT’S JUNE 1. Really sorry about that! You are welcome to buy/sell your wristbands at any time, but that will be when we open the transfer form and forum category.
AP – How about a “Looking for Rides/Rides Available” category too. I seem to recall it was well a utilized topic in years past. Thanks.
Great idea Uncle K. It should be added. Let me know if it doesn’t show up under Categories.
Just FYI there is nowhere (at least that I can figure out) to see the categories on a mobile browser, which is mostly where I check these forums from. It’s very hard to figure out how to post a new topic from a phone.
The only way I’ve been able to figure out how to post a new topic from my phone is find a post already posted in the category I want, and then click in that category in the post heading. Then it will give you an option to post a new topic. But if you can’t find a post already posted in the category you want, then I don’t know how you would post a new topic from a phone.
It’s also not very intuitive how to get back to the main forum page from a post in the mobile browser. I have to go select Forums again from the main menu to get back to the main page. There is no option from a post to get back to the main page.
On this Samsung Android phone, I see the Categories way down at the very bottom of any Forums page, under the Charters pictures.
Clicking one brings up the option to Create New Topic.

It would be nice when displaying a category if its title were shown. It appears to be the main forum, unless you happen to notice that some posts are missing. Thank you!
Thank you all for the feedback! Adding a category is about the extent of my ability to change the way the forums operate. I’ll mention the mobile and category title issues to our developer. But their focus right now is updating the app so it may be some time before anything changes.
Thank you, Andrea!
Would “Looking For / Offering PASSES” be useful, too?
How do you delete your post on the forum?
Yes! I usually add the looking for/selling wristband categories on JUNE 1 when wristband numbers are assigned. EDIT the date for transfers is actually June 1. I had previously written May 1. Sorry for my confusion!

@Daniel – For me there is a TRASH option directly underneath my post. I click that, then when the page refreshes I have to click DELETE. If those options don’t show up for you, please email me andrea@RAGBRAI.com with a link to the post you would like to be deleted. I would be happy to remove it for you.
Looking for a week long rider registration pass…….
Thanks for this help, Andrea. Is there any way to search the forum? For example, for a ride, I’d like to see who might have mentioned “Florida,” so I know I’m narrowing down the possible solutions.
Unfortunately I do not know any way to search the forums specifically, sorry!! My best tactic would be to go to the Ride category and then CTRL-F the word Florida on each page.
