RAGBRAI Route Announcement Party set for Friday, January 28! Get your tickets


I was recently commenting on how good the new PBV app was in a different forum and it reminded me to take a look at this years RAGBRAI app with only a week or so to go before the ride. Is it just me or is the RAGBRAI app pretty much non functional. I can’t even get it to open. Anybody else use the app for maps, info, updates, etc and experiencing the same or is it user error, which is entirely possible.

I share your frustration regarding the RAGBRAI app. Every time I try to open it it immediately closes! Deleted the app and downloaded it again – still same issue.

DENBIKER…..same thing for me. Was doing that last fall. I emailed Ragbrai about it and I was told that the app wasn’t updated. Not sure why that would cause it to automatically close like that every time. Hopefully next year they will have the app up and running.

There appears be a new official Ragbrai® app on the Apple store now. Unfortunately it appears it will be the equivalent of horse manure during Ragbrai® because the maps require a online connection. We need it like the old app where the maps were just a photo and could be used offline. Also need the mileage between towns and service times cut offs. The new app is essentially useless.

You could download the map pdfs to your phone before you leave. That way you have them there all week and wouldn’t need a good wireless connection.
