WATERLOO – RAGBRAI riders looking for a yard to call their own as they stay overnight in Waterloo during RAGBRAI now have a place to connect with residents interested in hosting them. The Facebook group called “Waterloo RAGBRAI Housing Match” allows riders and hosts to publicly post accommodation requests.

“It’s just a new way to match housing,” said Lindsay Pieters, marketing director for Experience Waterloo.

Staff with Experience Waterloo and the city of Waterloo also are offering several designated campsites. Exchange Park will be the main campsite for riders, and some large groups will be placed at Water Works Park and Sans Souci Islands.

Officials with the 48th annual RAGBRAI have veered away from connecting riders with hosts and this year are urging more private connections.
