Discover Ames


Welcome to the Ames RAGBRAI Housing system. Let us show you our legendary Ames hospitality!

  • Riders: Please create a profile, then complete the “Request Housing” form with information about your group and details about your housing needs. Residents may select your group and message you through the system. Once a community host has matched with you, please remove your listing.
  • Residents: Please click on the “Host a Rider” box and choose the rider(s) or team(s) whose needs align with your available space. Send a message to the rider(s) through this system, and be sure to share your contact information and physical address.
  • Important note: It is your responsibility to retain the names and contact information of your riders/hosts because this information is NOT stored in this system once you are matched.
