Lodging

Book your pre and post ride hotels in Burlington through our partner Hotel Planner for maximum relaxation. You’ll want the extra comfort before and after this year’s ride. 

Shuttles

Travel to the starting point of RAGBRAI and back home from the ending point of the ride is the responsibility of the registrant. Many rely on relatives and friends for transportation while others take chartered buses offered by bicycle clubs, bicycle shops, and other organizations. You could choose to fly into Des Moines, Iowa, Chicago, Illinois, Moline, Illinois (Quad Cities), St. Louis, Missouri, or Omaha, Nebraska and take a charter to the starting town and a charter back to Des Moines, Chicago, Moline, St. Louis or Omaha from the ending town. The route does change each year so starting and ending towns will not be the same from year to year. RAGBRAI personnel will be glad to answer any logistical questions you may have at info@ragbrai.com.
