Registration is still open. You can get one through there

I need to register for a vehicle pass but cannot find where to within the registration portal. I’m registered and logged in, but see no option for buying one. Can someone pinpoint it or post a link? Thanks!

To get a vehicle pass through the registration process, you have to request it when register, and you must have at least three people on your group. If you’ve already closed out your registration or have fewer than three people in your group, you will not be able to request one through registration.

Pam Hunter – are you registered as an individual or as part of a group? If you are registered as an individual, you cannot request a vehicle pass. If you’re part of a group, does the group have three or more people?

Thanks for the info. I’m registered as a nonrider, and I’m driving while my husband is riding. I think I misunderstood the info on the main registration page, copy/pasted below:

$40 for a weeklong personal car/truck/SUV vehicle pass
$50 for a weeklong RV or Bus pass
(required for access to the RAGBRAI campground with your vehicle during the ride – available to groups of 3 or more registered participants)

I read this to mean that just the $50 RV/bus pass was for groups only, not the $40 pass for cars. So if both apply to groups and I’m not part of a group, then I’m SOL. I’ll figure something out.

Pam, their will be vehicle pass’s for sale on this forum when some people can’t go. So keep an eye on the forum after we get our tags.

There’s a $35 pass for support only. Does that have to be a group also?

I assume that it’s for a group only because I could not figure out how to putchase it when I registered. If you find out how, please post.

Hi, am I reading this right? I’m riding for the first time and my husband wants to drive his truck. He cannot get a vehicle pass because I’m not riding in a group?

Correct. Unless you are part of a group (at least 3 riders) and are registered as that group’s point of contact, you cannot buy a vehicle pass from the RAGBRAI website. As I was informed, you can try to buy one here in this forum if someone posts one for sale.

Your group of three can be a combination of riders and non-riders. It isn’t just riders.

Is RAGBRAI a bike ride or a caravan of 10,000 support vehicles ?

Stupid question. There’s no need to hate on those of us driving support for riders.
