Contact the RAGBRAI staff. They can help you. I am sure they can be under your supervision. But if you ask then you will know for sure. It’s on my bucket list to ride with my grandkids too. But I have to have the grandkids first! LOL have fun!
I purchased a new tent after I had my bed. And it just fit. But by the end of the week I was shoving it in the tent and swearing profusely! LOL so the next year I got a bigger tent. I am the princess you know! LOL
Our group got in around 10:30 or 11. We went to a few bars then ate at another. Had a few drinks, danced to the last 2 songs that the band was playing then ventured on to our support vehicle to get our bags. We were planning on staying in a downtown business apartment.

I hate the fresh air, I hate the sunshine, I hate the laughter, I hate making new friends, I hate the great feeling you get at the end of the ride knowing that you’ve accomplished something. Just joking! I love everything RAGBRAI except when it’s over and I have to go back to work.

Awesome to hear you and your friends are planning to do RAGBRAI! The experiences you and your friends will have will never be forgotten! My friends and I started when I was 40. and 20 years later, we are still going! When we get together, we always get on the subject of RAGBRAI and usually FOTFL at all the adventures we remember!

I found, by accident, a full list of overnight and the pass through towns for every RAGBRAI. It’s not official but is an interesting read. Especially since the temps outside are below zero! Makes me happy to think of July and RAGBRAI!
