Adventure. Teamwork. Resilience.

The Rapha Prestige tasks teams of four with an all-day adventure across stunning terrain. Unsupported and unmarshalled, the rules are simple: start and finish as a team, and pass through all the checkpoints.

Prepare for approximately 127 kilometres. Expect to be on the bike for around six hours, together we seek out the roads less travelled. Enjoy spectacular views of the Hunter Valley on undulating roads with vineyards over each crest. There will be checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will only be revealed to confirmed participants 48 hours before the ride.


The Prestige is a completely unsupported ride. You are responsible for navigation and keeping yourself and your team going. Minimum kit should include two tubes, multi-tool, pump, patch kit, and a chainlink. We highly recommend spare kit, nutrition and the use of 25mm wide tyres at a minimum. A paper cue sheet will be supplied as well as a .gpx file.


Up to 30 teams of four women will be confirmed. Ten spaces are guaranteed for Rapha Cycling Club teams.


$160 AUD per team. Once your application has been accepted, Rapha will be in touch to collect the entry fee. Rapha will supply a payment link to confirmed teams on or after Friday 26th May. At the start we provide water and coffee. At the finish we’ll have a buffet lunch and smaller local vintage at Harrigan’s Irish Pub. We hope you can stay with us to share stories as the sun sets.


The closing date for applications is Wednesday 24th May. Rapha will contact successful teams on or after Friday 26th May with a payment link.
