RAGBRAI LI Route Announced on Jan. 27!


I am so excited! This will be my 24th Ragbrai! I thought it was my 23rd but I did the math wrong. Math was not my best subject in school! I don’t know what I am more excited for – retiring in 16 days or RAGBRAI in 248 days?!?!?!

Nice! I just registered my wife and I as well! This will be my 2nd and her first!

Let’s do this!

2019 was my 17th and am now registered for #18. This is my first time using EnMotive and didn’t see the jersey I selected at checkout, just a $5 fee under “Products” . Guessing operator error but….???

First RAGBRAI ever. At 73, with over 30 years+ of riding everywhere but Iowa. I am finally checking this one off my bucket list.

Grew up in Iowa! Finally riding this thing!

I tried to register at the stroke of midnight today, hoping to be among the first to register. I was unsuccessful. Then it dawned on me! 12:00 midnight on November 15 in PA was still only 11:00 pm on November 14 in IA and registration was not open yet. Not to worry, though. I just completed the registration process and received the emailed confirmations!

Now it’s time to ramp up the indoor training, just in time for the predicted 4” of snow and }^%]+^# that is forecast for today and tomorrow. 😩. Only 249 days until Ragbrai L. It will truly be an L of a ride! 😃.

See you along the I-O-Way next year!

RAGBRAI Newbie here, I’m riding in my first RAGBRAI! I’m so stoked for this new adventure; I grew up in Sioux City and my husband in Sgt Bluff. So, we know all about RAGBRAI, I’m 5 yrs older than the ride itself, and wanted to do it all my life. Well life’s too short to wait! I wanted my hubby to ride but after discussing it, we agreed that he’d be my support driver and I’ll participate in the ride. Time to start training! See ya all in July!

Registered today- this will be my 7th ride. Native Iowan but live in the Pacific NW. Time to start planning my route to get to the starting town and how to get back at the end of the week.

Registered! Can’t wait to ride across Iowa again with 20,000+ of my closest friends!


Ride predictably! Communicate!

Back in 1983 for my first RAGBRAI, the Register charged a fee for the first time. If I remember right, it was only $7.50, and people lost their minds. Registered, and ready for #39.


Jeff Sanders, November 15, 2022 at 6:37 pm

I’m in! This will be number 5.


Mike Murphy, November 15, 2022 at 8:28 pm

Registered for my 12th ride. Looking for another great week.


RustyC, November 16, 2022 at 8:07 am

I’m registered too! My seventh and my daughters second. I’m exited to ride with her again.
I’ve also managed to browbeat a few friends that I tour with to finally join me in the corn. Good luck to all, and we’ll see you in Iowa!

Things were certainly a lot different when I rode my first RAGBRAI in 1980. It’s been interesting to watch it grow and evolve over time. It’s still such a great gathering that manages to lure me from this Vermont hillside to the land of soy and corn for an annual reunion with the many friends I’ve made on the ride over the years.

I am registered and this is my first time at RAGBRAI.
For those that have done it, any advise on how to go about getting from the end city (where I will park my car) and get a ride/chartered out to the start?


Nico ZZZ, November 19, 2022 at 9:34 am

Savoyj, some charters offer bus rides to non-charter riders. Pork Belly Ventures offers bus rides to and from airport cities, end towns and start towns, etc.
