More than 15,000 RAGBRAI riders will be pedaling their bicycles into Fort Dodge next month and the local committee managing their overnight stay is asking residents to open up their yards, bedrooms, and bathrooms for housing.

According to City Councilman Neven Conrad, who is the RAGBRAI executive committee chair, indoor and outdoor housing is still being requested for the July 26 overnight stay, so a Facebook page has been created to match up locals with available space to riders.

“The majority of initial requests aren’t looking for bedrooms to stay in, but have simply wanted a place to pitch a tent outside, preferably with access to a bathroom and a shower,” said Conrad. “That’s something most homeowners can provide.”
