Bicycle Ride

Festive 500

Back in 2010 , Rapha launched one of their landmark challenges. They invited riders to log in a minimum of 500 km between Christmas and New Year and called it The Festive 500. The idea caught on and Festive 500 became an annual event. Last year, 82,376 riders signed up. So what is it about? Rapha says “It is not a mile-chasing thing but rather a journey. It’s about getting out there, enjoying being on your bike and riding with or visiting other people.”
