Every year since 2010, cycling clothing brand Rapha has hosted the Festive500, a challenge to ride 500km between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. It now exists as a mass event with cyclists from all over the world taking part. If you need a bit of group motivation to get into the saddle over that period, Rapha is also offering rides from its Clubhouses during the eight days. There will also be individually organised rides with the RCC (Rapha Cycling Club). All participants who complete 500km can claim a commemorative woven roundel. Rapha also awards three top prizes to the best stories. So, if you’re already planning a Christmas day ride on that shiny new machine, you can get started before a slice of turkey has even passed your lips! Take a look here for more info on how to take part and to see past Festive500 stories.
