Get Involved with Team SAU and RAGBRAI!

RAGBRAI 2018 - July 22-28

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. 

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.  The 2018 overnight stops are Onawa, Denison, Jefferson, Ames, Newton, Sigourney, and Iowa City (before ending in Davenport). 

Housing has been secured for the 2018 ride!  Thanks to those who are hosting this year.

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.  Space is limited.  Those interested in joining the group should contact the team reps as soon as possible.  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.
