Intended for riders seeking leisure, scenery and culture. Expect to move through exquisite landscapes at a comfortable pace. However, every rider embarking on a trip with Rapha Travel should be an experienced road-bike rider and at ease in the saddle for the better part of a morning or afternoon.
Suited for the avid cyclist, comfortable with climbing for extended periods of time and riding hard on the flats. It’s recommended that riders have maintained sustained training and a fairly high mileage in preparation for one of these trips.
Reserved for riders with considerable fitness and endurance. These formidable rides feature steep grades and a pace set to challenge any rider mentally and physically. We recommend that someone is capable of receiving the Gold award on a typical Sportive. Those who haven’t put in their time in the saddle will be found out quickly.
Although both the Randonnées and Cent Cols are tough physical challenges, riders enjoy excellent support throughout. Each trip has been designed to make all aspects of the journey as stress-free as possible.
