Hi Beerbronco! Also from Denver and looking forward to RAGBRAI in July! Most vendors will accept cash and many accept CCs as well. If you want to buy pie or food from local churches and organizations, they usually want cash. My advice would be to bring some cash with you everyday along with you CC. I usually pack about $40-60 per day. Hope that helps!

I also take an inflatable pillow. It’s not as comfortable as a regular pillow but it is small and easy to pack/carry.
Hi All, I’m posting my current packing list for Ragbrai to help anyone curious on what to bring along. I know the list seems long but it’s really not bad. Matt also has a pretty good list so perhaps he can also post his suggestions. Comments/criticisms welcome! :-)
