Registration for Great Iowa Fall Ride Open!

RAGBRAI L Transfer Details

  • 27 May, 2023

RAGBRAI L riders look no further. Wristband transfers will open on June 1, 2023 via registration for weeklong rider and weeklong non-rider wristbands only.

The seller will need to follow the steps below to officially transfer their wristband credentials to the buyer. Failure to follow the steps will render the wristbands invalid for your buyer on the ride. Please reach out to if you have any questions.

Step 1: The seller identifies a buyer and arranges the “sale” of the registration credentials. The credentials include a wristband, bike band, luggage tag, license plate, and a participant guide.

Step 2: Once the seller and the buyer agree to the terms the seller must initiate the transfer in the EnMotive registration system to ensure the wristband number is transferred and the buyer signs the waiver. Failure to do this step renders the sale invalid to RAGBRAI.

  5. Type in the buyer’s email address
  6. An email will be sent to the buyer’s email (check your junk too)
  7. The buyer has 48 hours to go through the transfer link, if it expires the seller we have to follow the steps above to resend the transfer link
  8. The buyer clicks the transfer link to accept the transfer offer and then follows the steps of registration.
  9. Once the buyer completes the transfer no further action is needed by either the seller or the buyer.
  10. Transferred wristband numbers will be uploaded to the buyer’s registration daily at 2 pm CST. Follow the steps below for accessing your wristband number in the system.

PLEASE NOTE: The registration packet will be sent to the seller (we have to do this to get registration packets out to all riders in time for the ride). The seller will need to arrange to ship their packet to the buyer once it is received.

    Are there transfers for vehicles? My dad and son have decided to come, but the car is not registered. If anyone has one to transfer, I would love to take it!

    I did the transfer of wristband. How can I change my team? At the time I had to use the team of the person transferring because I did not have my team access code. Just not sure how I make sure I am on the correct team.

    How to transfer Day passes??
    Past years when I purchased day passes from the forum I thought there was a transfer process to put the registration in my name.
    I only see information on transferring week long passes.

  14. Andrea Lucier

    How do you transfer something you don’t have yet and not sure if it will make it here in time to transfer it over and ship to them? Anyone has an answer to this, please help.

  16. readyset2go

    It sounds like refunds should be in order for those who have not been provided their wristband. You are not making it possible to resell since we have not been provided the wristband.
