The in-town Iowa City RAGBRAI bike route:

  • South Gilbert Street north to Market Street
  • Market Street west to Madison Street
  • Madison Street south to Iowa Avenue
  • Iowa Avenue west to Riverside Drive
  • Riverside Drive north to Park Road and the main entrance to City Park

Riders will exit Iowa City using a near identical route, but will use Jefferson Street instead of Market Street.

Registered RAGBRAI support vehicle routes:

Drivers are asked to approach Iowa City from Interstate 80, and travel south on Dubuque Street (exit 244) to City Park for camping. Park Road Bridge will only be open to RAGBRAI registered vehicles. No pedestrians, cyclists or other vehicles will be allowed access at any time. This bridge is currently under construction. Proceed with caution. The bridge will close to RAGBRAI registered traffic at 6 p.m. and reopen at 5:30 a.m. Saturday, before closing again at noon.

RVs and buses will park in the University of Iowa’s Hancher Auditorium lot adjacent to City Park. No camping will be allowed anywhere on the UI campus, with the exception of RV parking in the Hancher lot.

A supplemental RV space will be in Napoleon Park, 2501 S. Gilbert St. on the south edge of Iowa City. Vehicles parking in this area are asked to approach Iowa City from Highway 218 and need to access the site from McCollister Boulevard. Follow @RAGBRAI_IC on Twitter for live traffic info, and notification when the main RV lot is full.
