Denison, Iowa – With somewhere near 20,000 RAGBRAI-affiliated visitors expected to visit Denison on July 22nd, the RAGBRAI Denison housing committee is looking for volunteers to provide various space to riders during their visit.

CLICK HERE for the online form or CLICK HERE  for a printable form to volunteer to provide housing for RAGBRAI.

We need help from volunteer hosts who can provide parking for motor-homes, space for tents, bed or floor space, or bathroom facilities.

Hosts are only expected to provide a place for riders to rest their heads for the night. The space provided may be either inside or outside. Local housing volunteers are not required to entertain guests or provide them with amenities. Hosts are not required to transport or feed the riders.

RAGBRAI riders utilizing local housing would have the option of placing a portable restroom on the property, which would be obtained at the expense of the riders staying at the property.

Riders are expected to arrive in town beginning mid-afternoon on 07/22/2018. They would leave the following morning and be back on the road by 9 a.m. on 07/23/2018.

Sign up as soon as possible to provide various housing services. Visit the RAGBRAI Denison website housing information page at to fill out an online form  or printable form and submit it to the RAGBRI Denison Housing committee. Riders will begin making housing requests on May 1st, 2018.
