It’s that time of year again when we get a few extra days off to ride our bikes longer. Non cyclists seem to believe it has something to do with a large guy in a red suit or about some infant born in a stable. Nonsense it’s 500km’s December 24th to 31st.
Below is a schedule all are welcome
Rapha Festive 500 Schedule
All rides depart from the shop.
All rides are open to extension or modification at the participants wish.
We will endeavor to apply a non-drop approach and if this is not possible due to time constraints, we will make riders aware during the ride.
I will attend all these meets as ride leader. Riders completing the distance are more than welcome to select which rides fall into their schedule.
Rides will leave on the dot so please be timely. 500km is time consuming enough without waiting for late comers.
Coffee and cakes gratis at HQ pre ride.
