Registration for RAGBRAI XLII is NOW OPEN!

We are excited to open registration for the oldest, longest and largest recreational bicycle tour in the world.  We hope that you will join us July 20-26, 2014 for our 42nd ride experiencing that unmatched Iowa hospitality and homemade goodness that is RAGBRAI.

Registration is now open for RAGBRAI XLII, an event that will surely add to your cycling memories!

If you are new to RAGBRAI, welcome!  You can create your profile on entries.ragbrai.com.  Click on “Create a profile,” which is the first step towards submitting a RAGBRAI entry.  You’ll create a log-in that you can use to register and to check the status of your entry. Fill out the form, click submit and you will receive an email from RAGBRAI confirming your profile creation and your username and password that you will use to log-in when you register for RAGBRAI XLII.

If you have registered for RAGBRAI in the past, you will now see that we are accepting an online waiver for all riders that are over the age of 18!  We hope this simplifies the registration process for individuals and team/group members.
