      Important Notes:

      • Completing the REGISTER's on-line RAGBRAI form and HBA's RAGBRAI Application Form does not automatically get you a wristband and HBA accommodations. 
      • RAGBRAI allots 60 to 70 week-long passes to HBA.  We cannot guarantee passes for all applicants.  Local, active HBA cyclists who participate in HBA events and club rides get 'first dibs'.  Club members who are not local, and out-of-town relatives of local HBA members add a lot of fun to our shared experience, and they will continue to be welcomed. 
      • If the number of applicants for HBA exceeds the allotted number of passes, plan-B is for extra riders to apply for individual wristbands through the RAGBRAI lottery.  HBA can sometimes provide overnight housing and daily baggage transport if the extra rider can provide their own transportation to the starting town. 
      • Send a separate application for each person:  (More than one application can be mailed in the same envelope.)
      • You must sign the HBA RAGBRAI Application and the RAGBRAI waiver(minors only). Unsigned applications will be returned.  
      • The cancellation fee this year is $40 until April 30th and $80 afterward.  The remaining fee will be refunded when we are able to sell your spot.  This fee helps cover costs and effort associated with reselling the passes.
