Bike World has many years of RAGBRAI experience... We're in charge of the logistics, but you're in charge of the fun!
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!
Don't need a ride? You can meet us in the start town and we will get your bags to each overnight town...all the way to the end... no bus transportation either way is included.

If you only need a ride, and are meeting your group on the road, we have added a transportation only option. We will get you your bike and your luggage to our campsite* location in the start town, and will bring you back at the end of the week. *please know where your group is located in the start town, and have a plan to get there.
