Rapha Retreats

A perfect blend of riding and relaxation: for when you want to get away from everything except the bike.

Retreats are luxurious breaks where the emphasis is as much on unwinding and enjoying stunning surroundings as it is on challenging yourself on the bike.

With exclusive villa-style accommodation in which to stretch out, and the best home-cooked regional specialities, local wines and culture, the Provence and Tuscany Retreats set a standard that others trip providers cannot match. This year, we are offering a new Retreat destination: Girona. Nestled under the Pyrenees, it is a mecca for pro cyclists and also in one of Spain’s gastronomic regional hotspots.

Rapha Retreats are always based in one stunning location, for the ultimate in stress relief, and you can tailor-make the riding itinerary to suit you. Choose 150km over the high mountains or a gentle ‘coffee spin’ before an afternoon of relaxation - guided or solo, it’s up to you. Non-riding partners are welcomed along to share the experience with you.

All Retreats include:
  • Airport transfers
  • Double-occupancy rooms
  • High guide-to-client ratios
  • Ride support from expert guides and Rapha support vehicles
  • All meals and on-bike nutrition
  • Daily massage and top-level mechanics
  • Laundry
  • Local art and culture, and activities for non-riding partners
  • Pre-trip discounts on Rapha apparel

Flights, alcohol outside meals and single-occupancy accommodation are extra.

Who are Retreats for?

Retreats suit all types of riders, except for those who want packed days and relentless riding. Although you will have the chance to do big days in the saddle and test yourself on amazing roads, your time can be as demanding or as gentle as you like: wine tastings, market trips, swimming and massages are examples of indulgences that are positively encouraged.
