Get Involved with Team SAU and RAGBRAI

Host the Team Overnight: The team needs places to camp at each overnight stop on the route.  Hosts need to have camping space for 20-25 people; space to park a van or truck; and have restrooms, showers, and some outlets (for phone chargers) available for the team.  The 2018 overnight stops are Onawa, Denison, Jefferson, Ames, Newton, Sigourney, and Iowa City (before ending in Davenport).  If interested in hosting the team, please contact the team reps.  Please note, the team has housing set for Iowa City.

Join the Team: The team consists of primarily seasoned riders. Riders must be able to ride in a group and follow the SAU code of conduct. Space is limited. Those interested in joining the group should contact the team reps (listed above) as soon as possible. The team registers as a group through RAGBRAI, so please contact them before registering as an individual.

Be a Team Driver: Drivers are needed to transport equipment across the state as the riders journey to each destination. Drivers need a valid driver's license. If the driver will be using a university van, the driver must take the test and have a Class C license. If interested, contact the team reps.

Jersey Info: These are worn by the team during RAGBRAI. If interested in purchasing, contact Mt. Borah at 1-800-354-2825. Tell them you want the 2013 SAU Jersey. Here's a helpful document about the jersey ordering process (pdf). Pricing is subject to change and normally ranges from $70-$80. Sizing questions can be answered by visiting the Mt. Borah site. Other questions can be answered by the team reps.
