RAGBRAI LI Weeklong and Day Passes available until 7/5!


Really excited to have received my registration package today; however,was disappointed when I tried on my jersey (and extra large which is usually just a little big for me) and found it was at LEAST one size too small but probably two sizes tOo small. Make sure you try on your jersey rather than assume it will fit.

This happens every year. We are not all skinny Italian bike racers. I wear an XL in everything else but I order my RAGBRAI jerseys in XXXL size. When are they (the Register) going to realize that? I have no idea what you would do if you normally wear an XXXL.

You can either return it now or hit the expo EARLY in Sioux Center and trade -or at least that is usually how they do it.

My size L fits great.

I normally wear an XL in shirts and/or jerseys. However, I order 2XL in a jersey made by Primal. My XL RAGBRAI jersey fits great!!!!

Large is a perfect fit for me, I think it is aero!

I’m 5’8″, about 163, got the large and it fits fine. A little snug in the mid section, but not too bad. Never had a jersey that was a full zipper style like that.

My envelope was in the mailbox today and I couldn’t wait to try the jersey on. I’m 6’0″ and weigh 209, and my xl is a little snug, but not so much that I’ll need to exchange it. I may however have to use some discretion with my planned all-pie every-pie diet for the week of the ride. It’s a really nice jersey and I think looks considerably better than the illustrations on the website.

If my jersey don’t fit, you must acquit.. err, something like that.
Yeah, gonna go up a size to the XL so that my pie-retention tank doesn’t show so much. :-D

I notice all the jerseys are plainly marked XL this year.

Is it best to order a jersey ahed of time or can I wait until I get to Sioux Center etc?
