Q
Where to park if only riding for one day?
A

For one-day parking (dropping off the car and picking up the same day), it depends where you'll start riding. If starting at the Mid-America Center, there is parking on the south side in the south lot there. You can also park on the north side of the Horseshoe Casino in their overflow lot. If starting further into town, you can find parking at Mall of the Bluffs or the old K-Mart parking lot at the corner of Railroad and Kanesville.

Q
Where will the Expo take place?
A

The RAGBRAI Expo will take place in the northeast parking lot of the Mid-America Center just south of 23rd Ave. 

Q
Where will the tire dip take place?
A

Due to flooding and uncertainty of river levels, the tire dip location has been moved near the expo for a non-traditional dip. Please follow Council Bluffs RAGBRAI on Facebook and @ragbrai_cb on Twitter and Instagram for updates.
