Enjoy the typical HOTN bonhomie between the riders along the way, and finish in time to watch the pros race the real thing in France at the pub.

  2. Sixteen For 2016

    Tekst: Simon Mottram | Datum:

    It’s time once more where, as road riders, we prepare for the approaching season and set goals for the New Year. My goal in 2016 is 50 momentous rides, to celebrate my 50th year. Here at Rapha I encourage all employees to set riding targets, to have one or more things in the crosshairs to help better their riding and racing. Every New Year I also like to look ahead to what Rapha as a company has in its sights; the products we will launch, the events we will host and the places we will travel to. Back in 2008 it was easier, I thought, to compile such a list. I supposed this year it would be much tougher, but it wasn’t. We have some amazing things in store for 2016, from new Cycle Clubs to watching the Tour on Mt. Ventoux. Everyone is, of course, invited to join the ride. From all of us at Rapha, happy New Year and strong riding in 2016.

Dating back to the 1400s, this private estate turned public park in Halifax served as a picture-perfect background for the beginning of this year’s Super Cross series UK, and welcomed more than 1,000 riders onto a world-class cross course throughout the weekend.

    For the second year, the Rapha Super Cross Series visits the iconic Olympiapark in Munich. Organised alongside Munich’s oldest cycling club, RC “Die Schwalben” 1894, Rapha Super Cross Munich occupies sacred cyclocross ground. The 1985 and 1997 UCI Cyclocross World Championships were held on these tracks, and is considered holy to many.

  6. #MYHOUR

    Tekst: | Datum:

    “I like the idea of challenging myself and want to motivate people to do the same – so why not get your bike out of the shed and do your own hour?”
    – Sir Bradley Wiggins

    On Sunday 7th June, Sir Bradley Wiggins will make his bid for the UCI hour record at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London. The distance to beat, 52:49km, was set by Australia’s Rohan Dennis in February this year.

    In support of Wiggo’s attempt at the hour record, Rapha and Sir Brad are inviting everyone to ride their own ‘hour’ in the week preceding Wiggins’ attempt, and share the details of your efforts using the hashtag #MYHOUR. This isn’t about speed. Rather, it’s about the cumulative effort of hundreds of thousands of cyclists around the world, demonstrating to Sir Brad that he’s got countless fellow riders pulling for him. There will also be a dedicated Strava challenge, providing another way to record your distance.

On a freshly tweaked 100km course, featuring two new gravé offroad sectors and a train line crossing, the riders could enjoy a feed stop and a few laps at Gosling Park velodrome, as well as over 700 well-deserved pints and Belgian frites at the finish line in the pub.

    Tekst: | Datum:

    Join us for another blistering tribute to the Paris-Roubaix – 100km of potholes, mud, and some of Hertfordshire’s meanest gravé*. Starting in Pond Square in Highgate, this year’s edition will yet again pitch riders against a testing parcours in the lanes above London before heading back to watch the race proper.

  9. Super Cross Sydney Report

    Tekst: Danny ‘Danger’ James | Fotografie: Beardy McBeard | Datum:

    What makes a great sequel? Is it a simple case of bigger is better, or is it something less tangible? Is it a deepening of the story, the characters, or something unexpected? Whatever the case, sophomoric efforts will always be judged in a harsher light than their freshmen counterparts – for good reason.
