Urbandale residents should expect travel delays during RAGBRAI. Riders will be in our community from Wednesday, July 26-Thursday, July 27. 

Here are five critical tips to keep in mind as you travel throughout the metro:

  1. Anticipate bikers in Urbandale between 8:00-5:00 PM on Wednesday, July 26th. While Urbandale is not on the official route, you will encounter bikers riding off-route in our community. 
  2. Know route information. Go to for maps of the route.
  3. Use the interstate. If you must travel through the metro, stick to the interstate system due to local road closures.
  4. Take an alternative route to the airport. Fleur Drive will be very congested. Instead, take Interstate 35/80 south to Highway 5.
  5. Prepare for slower traffic. With thousands of bikers riding around the metro, you will experience slowdowns. Try to be patient. Every change implemented is for the riders' safety!
