Online Club Registration and Payment (See button above) - Ride with the Siouxland Cyclists for a day ($25) all the way up to the entire week ($150)! This fee goes directly to the club, you still will need to register with RAGBRAI and pay RAGBRAI registration fees directly. 

Online Charter Bus Payment $100 – You've hoisted your sweat encrusted bicycle into the air on the banks of the Mississippi for the obligatory photograph.  Now what? The club hires a charter bus to take riders to Sioux City.  The bus departs Davenport at 3PM and we typically stop to eat a meal along the midpoint on the way back.  As long as there are seats available, even riders who did not ride with the club can buy a ticket and ride back with us. 

Siouxland Cyclists Membership - $20- In order to ride on RAGBRAI with the club providing SAG services, you must be a member.  Many out of town riders join the Siouxland Cyclists expressly so they can ride on RAGBRAI with the Club

The Siouxland Cyclists play an active role in RAGBRAI® (Des Moines Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa).

Each year, for a small fee, we offer baggage and return transportation services for members who obtain RAGBRAI® passes.

Members bring their own tents.  The club provides transportation of your gear. Other benefits to riding with the club include:

  • Mobile device charging stations.  

  •  Chairs & awnings for fun in the shade!

  •  Affordable water, sports drinks, soda, and beer. 

  •  In those areas that permit it, Siouxland Cyclists will set up a shower tents.  The club brings water and battery operated camp-showers, along with stand-up tent shower stalls.  Modern showers can be obtained from a variety of community buildings as well as shower trailers for $5 to $8 typically.

  • Meeting new people from all over the place!

Finding the Siouxland Cyclists area of the campsite can be a challenge at the overnight town.  Riders should check the message center located at the awning for information of the next day's camp site location.  Also, as riders enter the overnight town, they can keep a lookout for "Siouxland Cyclists" signs with arrows pointing the way.  (Most recently, these markers are hot pink arrows located directly on the pavement.)
