Wanting to join or host a group from Indiana to RAGBRAI 2019!

My boyfriend and I live on the north side of Indianapolis and are hoping to find a group to travel to/from RAGBRAI with this summer! We can tow bikes, bring a cooker, and more! I want to ride all week, he wants to drive a vehicle as support

I may be interested. I am in Salem, Illinois so pretty much right on the way for you

Awesome!!! Sounds great!! Have you been to RAGBRAI before?

I just posted on the regular “looking for rides” thread that my daughter and I are looking for a ride home at the end of RAGBRAI (from Keokuk or Burlington) to Indiana. We are in Bloomington, but maybe if we could get to the Indy area this would be a great help. Happy to share fuel costs. I don’t want to limit you getting a group together for the week, but please let me know if you might have room for the return trip. Thanks! Pete

Please get a wristband.
It is the right thing to do.

Rick- I apologize for the delay in response. We are considering purchasing an old bus for the adventure, removing seats in the back for bikes. If so- we will probably drive state roads… not sure if we would cross your path. Let’s stay in contact! This will be my fourth RAGBRAI. In the past have connect with a group in Iowa… but really am looking to connect with folks here from Indy to train with and make a yearly “thing”. 🙂

Thanks for your interest!

Daryl- do you have a wristband to sell?

Pete- we are still trying to find folks here in Indiana that would like to join us round trip for the whole week. I will stay in touch with you and let you know if we have room as we get closer to RAGBRAI-ok?

I live out side Lousiville in southern Indiana if anyone needs a ride to the end town I have room for a couple

Evansville guy-
IF I’m unsuccessful pulling together a group- Cam and I would love to join you!

Suzanne This is my first RAGRAI. My first long ride of any kind really. Any advice for a beginner? Getting a bus sounds like amazing! That opens up so many options for adventure. If it works out your route takes you near me let me know, if not maybe I’ll see you there.

I am riding my first official RAGBRAI! (I rode two partial days last year into/out of Ames) Am finally thinking about logistics and am interested in riding along if you still are doing/have space for one. I’m in North Central Indiana but could meet just about anywhere. I’m most interested in joining on the way to Council Bluffs; I may have family join me at the end to do some visiting (and provide a return to Elkhart)

EvansvilleINGuy or Jonathan…
If either of you would have room on the return back from the end town (or even Burlington) to IN, my daughter and I would be interested. We are in Bloomington, but getting back close would be great. Thanks!


Suzanne Glesing, June 10, 2019 at 1:35 pm

Still trying to figure out our plan…. I’m in the middle of moving right now too- so let me talk with Cam and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can! 🙂👍

Thanks for your interest!


Suzanne Glesing, June 10, 2019 at 1:37 pm


Loved hearing from you!!! Let me talk with Cam and we’ll get back to you in a day or two!


Jonathan Schrag, June 10, 2019 at 3:44 pm

Pete, I’ll keep it in mind and let you know as plans firm…currently my wife might meet me and we take an extra day to visit friends..but I also need to get back to work!so she might visit them first and we boogie home after the ride..
