RAGBRAI LI Route Announced on Jan. 27!

Registering first and then start up a group

Can I register, pay and then start up a group where I am the group leader?

I want to sign up and get that done but I have some friends that are on the fence. Can I just sign up now, pay my money and then be later start up a group?

Or can I start up a group, pay, if though it might just be a group of one? Is there anything wrong with that?

I suggest you get yourself registered and have your fence-sitting friends register for themselves. There is no requirement to be part of a group/team. For the registration lottery, it is an all-or-none selection for each individual or group. Get yourself registered on time!!!

As follow-up, you cannot start a group after you pay/close out an individual registration (unless it is a new group without yourself).

Plus when it gets close to the ride there will be a plentiful supply of passes available from individuals that can no longer attend. Daily passes, weekly passes, no rider passes and vehicle passes. Fence sitters that decide to join you at the last minute should have no trouble finding someone on the forum selling a pass. (so no excuses to be a bandit)

Thanks for the help. My buddy end up signing up and paying but some how I managed to mess it all up. The system says I didn’t register and that I can’t pay. I thought I had registered but I guess not. I have an email in to see what I did wrong.

check under “MY RAGBRAI” up in the top menu. you may have just created an account but didn’t do all the registration steps

I got it all figured out. Thanks for the help. My buddy is in, I am in, and we are all paid.
