Get Involved with Team SAU and RAGBRAI!


Every July, a team of Ambrosians treks across the state of Iowa during RAGBRAI, meeting fellow Bees along the way. There are many ways to be involved in the annual tradition.  The 2019 ride will start in Council Bluffs on July 20 and travel through Atlantic, Winterset, Indianola, Centerville, Fairfield, and Burlington, before ending in Keokuk on July 27.

See the opportunities below.  You can also get more information by contacting the Team SAU representatives Steve Conrad ( or Kevin Farrell ( for more information.  And no matter where you are, you can keep up with the team by following their Facebook page.

Be a part of Team SAU

Host the Team Overnight

The team needs places to camp at each overnight stop on the route.  Hosts need to have camping space for 20-25 people, space to park a van or truck, and have restrooms, showers, and some outlets (for phone charging) available for the team.  Overnight hosts are needed in the following towns: Council Bluffs, Atlantic, Winterset, Indianola, Centerville, Fairfield, and Burlington.  If you're willing to host the team, please contact the team organizers for more details.

Join the Team

The team consists primarily of seasoned riders.  Riders must be able to ride in a group and follow the SAU code of conduct.  At this time, Team SAU is at capacity.  Those interested in joining the group should contact the team reps as soon as possible to be placed on a waiting list.  The team registers as a group through RAGBRAI, so please contact them prior to registering as an individual.

Be a Team Driver

Drivers are needed to transport equipment across the state as the riders journey to each destination.  Drivers need a valid driver's license.  If the driver will be using a university van, they must complete the test and have a Class C license.  If interested, contact the team reps.
