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.

My daughter and I still have not received a confirmation email, and I’m starting to doubt the completeness of our registration. I’ve emailed them at the “info” address with no reply. (I have my registration confirmation code from when we registered on enMotive)

Has anyone else been left out?

No wristband number?


RustyC, May 9, 2021 at 10:11 am

That is correct. No wristband # for me or my daughter.

Has anyone received the e-mail with their wristband number?

Still waiting also

Anyone received the “You’re in” email, or their wristband number??

The water bottle I got in the mail a week before last was purple.

I got an email last week telling me that I had survived the lottery. That email said that wristband numbers would be sent out soon. I checked everywhere I can think of this morning and I don’t see one yet but I am sure it will come. If you did not get an email about the lottery last week then check your spam and junk folders because I have heard directly from RAGBRAI that everyone who registered got an email one way or the other last week and I also heard from the usually very well informed Pork Belly Ventures that everyone who registered would get in this year.

If you think you registered and you did not get an email then the next step is to ask about this at by email. I am sure that they are swamped with email questions right now so it may take a while to get a reply. In my experience they never fail to reply.

“Just Go Bike” podcast #175 had Angela Parrott advising that the wrist band numbers would come out in “a week or so”. D

OK, it’s several days past the May 1 – 9 confirmation email window, and I still have received mine. I’m a week long rider who rolled an entry over from 2020. Anyone else with this problem?

Also, I’ve tried the “Contact” option, but when I hit the Send button, an error message ***Forbidden. Username seems to be a spammer.*** pops up. Are there any other contact options anyone knows of?

You can try .
You haven’t received your official rider email or haven’t received your tag number?
If you have your official rider email, you are “in” and the tag number email will arrive soon. The various charters and long term parking know the tag numbers are not out yet and allow you to register with the requirement of providing a tag number later. So no worries there.
If you didn’t receive your official rider email, have you checked your EnMotive account for accurate info and verification of the rollover?
If there is a glitch, they’ll resolve it for you. I’ve always had great service from them.

RAGBRAI recently turned up the anti-spam knob on their forum software from 0.001 to 11, or maybe 11,000! I have trouble getting through now, I’m at work pecking this out with one finger on my phone because my employer, a national defense contractor, is known to be a major RAGBRAI spammer. Apparently that’s all we have to do here. So I can’t use my work computer and I have to remember to disconnect from the company wifi before I can use my phone. So yeah email the info desk and see what your Enmotive account says.

You should have gotten an email confirmation from Enmotive shortly after you opened your account there and you should have gotten an email confirmation from RAGBRAI last week. Also, check your junk and spam folders. Sometimes OUR computers regard RAGBRAI as a spammer. Two can play that game!

I can’t even get into my Enmotive account. I try to login, and it just takes me to the page to register as a day rider.


wrj, May 12, 2021 at 5:27 pm

So I actually found my ragbrai number. Enmotive, login, my account (upper right), scroll down to actions, view registration.

Yeah, when I go to view registration, it takes me to register as a day pass rider. I can’t actually see my registration in EnMotive.

I didn’t receive a second email (just got the one last week saying I was through the lottery), but I checked just now and my wristband number shows up in my enmotive account. For those saying they get the day rider pass registration when they try to log in, in case it’s helpful that’s where I land too when I try to login, but there’s a pull down in the upper right hand corner that let’s me log in.
