Same question here! the site says its been mailed but haven’t seen it

I saw a post on FB just today (from RAGBRAI staff) that they are still mailing packets out. So, hang tight. And if worst comes to worst, you can always pick it up in Sioux City at the Expo. It all works out on RAGBRAI, it always does :)

I might be in a worse situation. The tracking for mine said it was delivered a week ago to my front door but I never received it. Maybe someone stole it?

I also ordered a jersey and souvenir package and it said those would be shipped separately in the spring. I haven’t seen nor heard anything about those, so when would I have gotten those?

Received my packet earlier this week. It’s been a tad later this year due to the mass amount of registered riders I bet.


Did you receive a tracking number via email about your jersey and souvenir? If not email and see if you can pick them up in Sioux City. Had similar issues in years past where I ordered jerseys and ended up picking them on Saturday prior to the race.

Problem solved! It turned out that USPS did not deliver to my door like the tracking said they did. Instead, they put the package in an Amazon Locker and I had to get our facility staff to investigate and open it for me since I didn’t have a code that worked. The numbers on my bands and luggage tag check out and there was a card inside explaining that the souvenir book won’t be shipped until after the ride. Whew! Thanks to Sammy Cash for starting this thread to prompt me to hunt down my stuff and to AMaliar for the advice, which I’m glad I won’t need.

Glad to hear, Raymond.

Chris – I live in Des Moines and didn’t get my packet until this week if that tells you anything.

I got mine last week items it included my wristband, bike band, information booklet and t-shirt, it indicated that several items that are part of my souvenir package will shipped after the ride.

Mine was not delivered one year. I went to the RAGBRAI booth at the first meet up town and showed my registration information (I took a screenshot on my phone). They gave me a packet then. It was easy.

Still no word on packets worst year ever for communication from RAGBRAI. I live in FL haven’t even received the email that its shipped. Team captain of 20 I guess there going to make me stand in a line on the first day so I can get use to it LOL


Albert Hsu, July 10, 2023 at 6:23 am

I’m a team captain and have received no tracking information :(


DenBiker, July 10, 2023 at 8:22 am

Same situation – Team Capt – No Packet – No Notice -No tracking!

From Dallas, TX,
Our team have not received any tracking email nor package either. Does not seemed there is a number to call and check. Email response from Ragbrai organizer is generic (same as the information posted in the website). I don’t think they look into the registration specific when replied to email.
