How to… Finish the Festive 500

Get by with a little help from our friends

Completing the Rapha Festive 500 takes commitment, creativity and a dash of holiday madness. Only 13,000 of the 72,000 participants were successful last year so to help you prepare for the challenge, we have collected advice from cyclists who have ridden it between 2010 and 2015.

Be inspired by their stories and use the words of wisdom to help plan your eight days of festive riding.
