Get Involved with Team SAU and RAGBRAI!


Every July, a team of Ambrosians treks across the state of Iowa during RAGBRAI, meeting fellow Bees along the way. There are many ways to be involved in the annual tradition.  Details regarding the 2022 RAGBRAI event can be found here.  The SAU Team looks forward to seeing alumni across the state as they embark on their journey, July 23-30.

There are multiple ways to get involved each year, so see the opportunities below. You can also get more information by contacting the Team SAU representatives Steve Conrad ( or Kevin Farrell ( for more information.

And no matter where you are, you can keep up with the team by following their Facebook page

Be a part of Team SAU

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 charging) available for the team. This year's host towns are Ida Grove, Pocahontas, Emmetsburg, Mason City, Charles City, and West Union.

If you are able to be a team host, please contact the Team SAU representatives Steve Conrad ( or Kevin Farrell ( for more information.

Join the Team

The team consists primarily of seasoned riders. Riders must be able to ride in a group and follow the SAU code of conduct. Those interested in joining the 2022 group should contact the team reps as soon as possible to be placed on a waiting list. The team registers as a group through RAGBRAI, so please contact them prior to 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, they must complete the test and have a Class C license. If interested, contact the team reps.
