The Knoxville Chamber of Commerce is looking for local residents who are willing to play host to some riders during RAGBRAI. Just like Nationals, many riders prefer to stay away from the fast-paced campground areas and would rather be peaceful guests in someone’s home or yard for the night.

Chamber Director Larissa Van Donselaar says this is another opportunity to welcome visitors and riders and show them Knoxville’s great hospitality. You can help out by filling out a housing form or by picking up a hard copy form at the Chamber Office, Candi’s Flowers, Sundance Realty, or the Center on the Square.

If you have questions, send an email to KnoxvilleRAGBRAI@gmail.com. The Knoxville RAGBRAI committee asks that hosts fill out or return applications by July 1st.
