Community hosts sought in Mason City for RAGBRAI participants

(ABC 6 News) – As Mason City prepares to welcome some 15,000 RAGBRAI riders, the city is in need of community hosts to give the riders places to utilize.

The city said it is looking for hosts who can "provide parking for motor homes, space for tents, floor space, bed and/or bathroom facilities."

"Hosts are only expected to provide a place for riders to rest their heads for the night. This space can be either provided inside or outside. Residents are not required to entertain guests, provide amenities, transport or feed the riders."

RAGBRAI Mason City will use the ‘Mason City Housing Match’ Facebook group to match locals and riders. This monitored group details important rules, instructions, and expectations for hosts and guests.
