Still looking for a reason to escape the party crowd? This year, too, you can take the Rapha Festive 500 away from everyone and cycle 500 kilometers from Christmas to the New Year.
This challenge has been around for many editions and the formula is and remains simple. Cycle 500 kilometers from Christmas to New Year’s Eve. Plenty of time, of course, but don’t flatten the elements. It just sounds a little easier than it actually is. But that’s why it’s also a great challenge!
And if you don’t want to or can’t defy those elements, you can also take refuge with the indoor trainer, because Zwift kilometers also count! Whether that makes it easier I don’t know, because it always costs me more effort to make kilometers indoors than outside. To each his own!
You don’t have to do it all alone because you can meet other riders via the Rapha Clubhouses, as far as the Covid measures allow this at the moment. If you’re looking for some extra motivation, a number of great prizes will also be raffled, including a Cannondale road bike. But also, for example, a Wahoo Kickr, a POC Omne Air helmet and a signed shirt of the EF Education NIPPO Tour de France team.
Just join their challenge on Strava, because otherwise it’s like you did it for nothing.
