Festive 500 2019: Eight Crazy Rides!

Back in 2000, our friends at Rapha started a challenge, a challenge to ride 500km during the eight days between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve and this year we decided to take part in the challenge. Our version will feature a series of great rides plus our annual bonus ride… 100k on New Years Day!

Sure we know this is a difficult challenge and there’s a lot of planning to be had during those days in order to make the challenge successful, but we think that’s the best part. Even if you don’t complete the whole Festive 500, challenge yourself to ride more during Christmas and New Years Eve and reward yourself with everything the Holiday’s have to offer.

For those of you that don’t wish to challenge the full 300+ miles we will offer shorter options each day as well so you can select how much time or fitness you have.
