Join The Team!

Registration for 2021 runs 15 November 2020 – 15 December 2020!

All Active Air Force, Reserves, Guard, Civil Servants and Retirees: How would you like to SLOW DOWN and represent the Air Force by riding your bicycle and serving others for a span of 7 days, riding ~70-100 miles a day? If you answered “YES!” Press on to instruction #1!

1. Contact the Base/Regional leader nearest to you to discuss the rider contract and consider before signing. Once signed, you enter into a very serious agreement of brotherhood and commitment.

Due to COVID-19 canceling the 2020 ride, many riders have opted to carry their slot forward to 2021. A limited number of slots are still available for 2021 however! 

(Note: Some regions/hubs fluctuate yearly based on available riders & leadership!  Some state colors on map are suggestions)


2. Once your contract is signed, work with your regional leader fill out the rider gear paperwork. You will submit that along with your payment to them. Your leader will have the latest copy of all forms.

3. Since each region has a limited number of initial spots your spot wont be reserved until your leader has received the signed contract, gear application, and payment (currently done via Venmo). There are other options (like local rider / non RAGBRAI rider) that your regional leader should be able to fill you in on.

4.  Deadline for 2021 is 15 December 2020!

Wait list determinations (if any) will be made 15-31 December

  1. Is riding RAGBRAI each year a requirement for membership? I’m a pilot headed to Columbus AFB, would be interested in joining and riding RAGBRAI but I don’t know my schedule next year at this point. Thanks!

    1. Daniel,

      Our regional teams do allow “local” riders or those who wont make it to Iowa, but they have a requirement of showing up for local events / rides (usually 5, but distance traveled can modify this) If still interested reach out to Skylar Graham (Barksdale AFB) as I believe he is the closest region to you.

  2. I am currently in Tech School at Sheppard AFB, I am in Tech School until around the end of April. I am a Category 1/2 road racer, is there anyway to get on the team after I get out of tech school? Or do I have to wait until the 2021 year?

  3. Are you doing RAGBRAI over Iowa’s Ride? Is it possible to separate into two teams to represent both events?

    1. Hi Ryan,

      The team has not yet decided, we will announce it on here and on our Facebook page once we do

  4. I would like to join the AFCT this year who is the closest team to New Hampshire?

    1. Hi William,

      I believe your closest team would be Ohio. Please reach out to Ron as found on the Team Leadership page.

  5. Hi all! I am newly stationed at Scott AFB and I am interested in finding a new group to ride with. I am new to cycling- just bought my first bike today, but I would love to learn more details about the group here at Scott.

  6. I am retired and an Iowa native; would love to ride with my fellow Airman! How can I join?

    1. Hi Rob,

      Sorry for the tardy reply. Please reach out to the Nebraska team lead as found on the contact page

      We’ve had a few last minute drops this year so there’s still room… though the available jerseys etc would have to fit.

      If too late for this year, there’s always next year! Our timelines are usually about the same year to year. Next registration will open mid Nov
