I would like to buy a vehicle pass.

Be patient. You will have an opportunity to purchase all of these after the people who registered get them in the mail. They will put up a forum for people who want to buy and sell bands and passes. There will be a bunch.

Mark – I have two wristbands for sale.

If you still have 2 I’ll taken em both.


Tawnia Laconca, April 25, 2018 at 8:07 pm

I do have them both. The first person to pay for them will get them. Are you ready to make them yours? You can email me directly at please. I do have one other person tonight who has expressed interest in a single ticket. I really need to get my money back and that’s why I have to do a FCFS protocol.

Tawnia it is not possible to have them since the lottery is not until May so no has them in there so I think this nothing but a scam or are you willing to pay them back if you don’t get picked in the lottery

I understand your concern but I am not part of the lottery. I am a member of a team and my admission has already been guaranteed. I had to sell my tickets last year and I am happy for anyone to confirm this via the RAGBRAI office.

Since this is your 2nd year selling your wristbands why even get them in the first place

My husband rode 3 years before marrying me and then we rode in 2016. Registered for 2017 and then injured in a club ride in Oregon in June 2017. Had to drop out. Sold tix. Planned to ride this year but his knee is still not 100% as anticipated.

Never heard of a team being guaranteed admission. I just thought yours chances of getting in increase because if one gets in the whole team gets in. I am part of a team that has ridden 25 Ragbrai’s and they have to wait until May 1 to find out.

I am interested to see how this all shakes out. I know when I have gone with a Charter that Wrist Bands are issued when we arrive at the Charters Campground. When I went with a Bicycle Club we were given our wrist bands when we loaded our bikes. When I went alone without either the wrist bands were mailed. In my experience wrist bands were never available this early. Maybe someone else will chime in and clarify this.

I am in need of 1 Wrist Band / 1 Vehicle Pass

I am intrigued by this concept, I was under the impression that being part of a team doesn’t alter your chances in the lottery. Is this incorrect?

I have been sent wristband numbers via email from Ragbrai. I have had to reaccess summer plans and I may be willing to sell if anyone is still looking. I will watch for replies here to set up private communications.
