Few hotel rooms remain for RAGBRAI in Coralville


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- In just 22 weeks RAGBRAI® riders will pedal through Coralville.  If you're looking for a place to stay, you better book fast.  The Convention and Visitors Bureau says rooms started filling up before the route announcement because it falls on the same date as move-in activities at the University of Iowa.

As of late Thursday afternoon there were only a handful of hotel rooms left, and they're expected to be at capacity by the end of next week.

Josh Shamberger of the Convention and Visitors Bureau says, "Those people who aren't fortunate enough to get a hotel room or don't camp, they're going to need housing.  So we need people in the community to step up and if they're interested in having some campers in their yard or some people sleeping in their basement, we have teams that will need that."

Coralville will begin accepting applications for volunteers with open yards and homes for bikers on May 1st.
