Discover Ames

RAGBRAI L volunteers

A note from our volunteer coordinator

Thank you for considering being a RAGBRAI volunteer in the Ames community!

It takes a village to make an event like this happen and I know Ames is up for it. From set-up to tear-down and everything in between, there is no small job when it comes to RAGBRAI L. I’m confident that the Ames community will work together to make this year the best yet, and Ames the best overnight town!

I’m anticipating a need of over 300 volunteers this year. Volunteers will be needed before riders get to town, while riders are here, and after riders leave. 

Thank you again for considering volunteering. When we all work together it really is all Fun and G”Ames”.
