Our featured RAGBRAI rider...

Melissa, YOU inspire us! Thanks for an amazing RAGBRAI 2019!

"I just wanted to say again how awesome RAGBRAI was. Last year was my first attempt at it and I had a ride-ending crash that bought me a trip to the ER, months of therapy, and eventually surgery on my neck on Christmas Eve. It's been a tough recovery and going again this year was a big boost for me. I was also dealing with iron deficient anemia on this years ride and wasn't sure I'd be up for it. I was disappointed I didn't feel I could manage the last days ride, but grateful I completed the first six in full. Thank you again for the ride in the van to allow me to at least ride part of the seventh day. I am definitely going next year and bringing my boyfriend Andy. You are awesome and I will use your services again and again!"

Questions about the tour...

Are there any meals included?

  • We will offer coffee in the mornings and we will have light snacks with soda and water in camp in the evenings but no full meals. We recommend the local food vendors in the overnight towns!

What do we do about showers and restrooms?

  • There are several vendors that offer showers and towels around RAGBRAI for a small additional fee. We will be as close as possible to all amenities including portable toilets. 

Will there be electricity to use my CPAP machine?

  • At this time, we can not guarantee each overnight location has electric hookup. We recommend using a portable battery - we will make sure it's fully charged during the day while you ride!
