The Great Iowa Fall Ride registration is open!

Lottery results?

Has anyone received notification that you’re “in”. In past years I think I remember getting an email early on May 1st with confirmation. I haven’t seen it this year.

We got in also! Cant wait. Curious as to how many riders there will be this year.

Wife and I are both in

It’s so good to feel the energy building towards this year’s ride. After all we’ve been through to get back to RAGBRAI again, it’s gonna be one helluva ride!

I suspect Pork Belly is correct when they say we all got in this year. I got the email too! So, I will see most of you in 80 days, that countdown was over 400 a year ago.

If you need to sell wristbands you can check with PBV who try to match sellers with buyers to try to fill all their charter spots. I don’t know which they have the most of right now. Go to click the Updates menu at the top of the page and select Update #9 – Happy Dancing. Scroll down a bit and find an email address for Sara who may be able to help you. Good luck and I hope you can make it next year.

Cool, I’m in.

Question: How many bazooka blasters (big speakers) should I bring? One or two?

I registered as a day rider and paid fees on Sunday night and got an email today saying I an official rider and made it through the lottery. So that was very quick turnaround. I was surprised thinking I wouldn’t hear until after the day rider registration closed at the end of May but I’ll take it.

“Question: How many bazooka blasters (big speakers) should I bring? One or two?”

Two. As long as they’re 12″ tubes. If you only have 8″, you’ll need at least three.
‘Cause if the mirrors aren’t shaking 1/4 mile away, it’s not loud enough :)

See you in July.

If anyone needs a wristband let me know ! I am unable to attend!

I received a nice steel drinking bottle with the 2021 logo on it! I thought it was going to be my wristband. Did anyone else get some promotional swag? Thanks Anne!

Yes, I got the same thing and also harbored a faint hope it might be a wristband already. Some people claim that if you signed up for the route announcement party livestream you were promised a water bottle. I don’t remember being promised a bottle but I did sign up for the livestream. If you did too then perhaps that’s what the bottle is about. Or maybe they’re just giving them to everyone. It’s been such a whacky year that nothing surprises me anymore!

Ken – is your bottle purple? Just curious if everyone got purple.


JimCoonRapidsMN, May 6, 2021 at 3:24 pm

So has anyone received the second e-mail with their wristband number?


Alan_50501, May 7, 2021 at 5:25 am

My water bottle is purple as well

Good morning, jpclark7!

In answer to your question about bazooka blasters, please let me offer this suggestion. If you turn on your blasters in LeMars and they cannot be heard in Des Moines at the same time, you need more blasters!

See you along the I-O-Way in July.
