“To discover that preconceived notions about one’s physical limits are mere perceptions that can be banished by unexpected achievement is an extremely liberating experience. This is the real raison d’être of these events. I wanted to create an event that could provide a space for riders to experience the real ‘soul’ of cycling.” Philip Deeker

Our Trip styles


Classic routes and inspiring journeys

Inspired by the classic brevets of Europe, Randonnées are point-to-point rides run over seven days. This season we will be journeying through Europe, the US and Japan. Averaging 130km of mountainous riding per day, our Randonnées are fully supported by soigneurs, mechanics, guides and drivers. Rapha Randonneurs will explore the landscape and culture of their host region, ride challenging terrain and experience the ca- maraderie of these exceptional adventures.

Unpack, ride, escape 

We have chosen some of the world’s most spectacular riding locations for our Rapha Retreats. These are not training camps: discussions of VO2 max tests and lactate thresholds will be left to others. Rather, we focus on riding as hard as your ability allows and immersing yourself in the landscape, with handpicked accommodation, routes crafted by experienced guides, and just the right helping of food, wine and culture.

Cent Cols Challenge

100 cols in 10 days

Created and run in association with endurance rider Phil Deeker, the Cent Cols Challenge sees riders average 200km daily, with approximately 4,500m of climbing each day. Held variously in the Alps, Pyrenees, Dolomites and Corsica, each Challenge combines routes and climbs from the grand tours with lesser-known gems to deliver an incredibly tough but unforgettable experience.
