These are the things that Rapha Travel delivers – all with our signature attention to detail, attentive service and style.

Cent Cols Challenge Southern Alps

The glorious southern Alps mix classic heavyweight climbs with tiny, undiscovered roads. The Italian side, in particular, will leave a strong impression, and be a trip into the unknown even for experienced Alps veterans. Three days at a lovely hotel near Mont Ventoux provide the event's pivotal stage. Do not be misled by the apparent lack of big climbs: with 10 2, 000m-plus cols in stages 7 to 9, the latter part of the trip will send you off on a high.

Starting in a baroque folly of a chateau near the Mediterranean we ride west towards the Second Empire grandeur of buzzing Biarritz, via classic Tour climbs and plenty of roads that are…

Travel Testimonials

What I have achieved on this trip is something very special – and that will be an important part of me for the rest of my life.

Thank you, Rapha, for creating the exact experience I was looking for. It was perfect for a cyclist like me, one who enjoys road cycling culture just as much as riding a bike as fast as possible. I hope to enjoy many more trips in the future.

The week I spent with your team in France was simply unsurpassed in terms of service, quality and attention to detail. Creating a holiday product is one thing, creating life-long memories is something very special.
