The assignment of numbers on the credentials coincide with the entry and waiver/release of liability that you signed, RAGBRAI is not in the business of reselling credentials. The sale of ride credentials is a private transaction, and RAGBRAI is not responsible for misunderstandings between the two parties, misplaced credentials, or the failure to transfer the credentials into the new owner’s name. The five week-long numbered credential items include a wristband, a bike band, a baggage tag, a bike license plate and a redeemable patch certificate A resold credential will not be valid unless it is officially transferred in the RAGBRAI office to the new owner before the event begins. This procedure not only transfers the wristband, but also the liability associated with it. To transfer a wristband, the new owner of the wristband must complete an online transfer form and submit waiver before the start of the ride in order to properly transfer the wristband to their name. If the online transfer form and waiver are not completed, the wristband and the liability for it will remain in the original purchaser’s name. MESSAGE BOARD on Many people post messages looking to sell or buy credentials in this forum. You might be able to find a person that is looking to sell and transfer their credentials on the RAGBRAI message board. If you do purchase credentials through a private sale, the credentials MUST be transferred. E-mail RAGBRAI at if you have questions about this procedure. Have you been selected in the RAGBRAI lottery? There are two ways to find the answer: 1)  Log-in and check your wristband number (and your teammates if you are the group contact) at Registration Login 2) or you can look up your wristband number with the lottery look-up at Lottery Look-Up Day Passes Day passes are not subject to the lottery process.  Below is a breakdown for each day of the ride.
