Festive 500 2016
Rapha exists to honour the sport of road racing. We make the finest cycle clothing and accessories, hold innovative ride events and run a global cycling club, among other exciting projects. In 2010 we laid down a challenge to our customers; ride 500km on the eight days between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Since then the Rapha Festive 500 has become a holiday tradition, with thousands of riders around the world taking part. Every finisher earns a complimentary woven badge, and the best story submissions win amazing prizes.
Entries for the Festive 500 2016 are now closed.
