THE FESTIVE 500
Since 2010, the Festive 500 has challenged cyclists to ride a total of 500km on the eight days between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Once again we invite you to join tens of thousands of riders in testing yourself on the bike over the holidays as part of this growing festive tradition.
Rapha encourages you to celebrate your commitment to the cause by documenting your Festive 500 with photos, films, letters – whichever way you see fit. The most creative and interesting submissions will be considered for a number of top prizes (see below). As always, all participants who complete their 500km can claim a commemorative woven roundel.
So, skip that glass of afternoon sherry and get off the sofa this holiday. The Festive 500 will end your riding year on a high.
Strava has added the Festive 500 as a challenge this year and I decided to take it on as my end of year challenge. I will post my summary of the challenge and my personnel experinces here after the first of the year.
