Greater Burlington Residents

Welcome, Greater Burlington Residents.  This space is dedicated to keeping you up-to-date on Burlington RAGBRAI news.


Would you like to host RABGRAI riders in your home?  We are seeking local residents to host riders during their time in our community. If interested in hosting, please complete the form above. Riders will be placed in homes after May 1.

Riders are expected to arrive into Greater Burlington beginning late morning Friday, July 26. They would leave Saturday, July 27 no later than 9 AM.

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