YOUR FIRST STEP

Go to www.ragbrai.com and fill out the registration form before April 1. Due to limitations with the RAGBRAI website, registration cannot be done on mobile devices. Our services can only be used by those with a RAGBRAI wristband.  Lottery results will be posted on May 1... don't worry if you didn't get a wristband, just let me know; we have always had more folks selling than buying (even up to the day we leave), and we can put you in touch with each other - you just might have to be patient!
