RAGBRAI LI Registration is Now Open!

Route Announcement Party – Hotels

Anyone know when hotels will be listed for the Route Announcement weekend? Several of our team members have started reserving rooms, but it now appears that there aren’t many, if any, rooms available at most downtown Des Moines hotels. Hopefully that means RAGBRAI will have already blocked rooms for people to reserve.

Renaissance Des Moines Savory Hotel – 515-244-2151
Holiday Inn Downtown/Mercy Campus – 515-283-0151
Ask for the Iowa Bicycle Summit block rate
Good luck!!

Renaissance would be the closest to Capital Square where the party is moving to. Next would be across the river at Embassy Suites or west to downtown Marriot.
