The main event of Rapha Rides Chicago is the Transfer Ride, a two-day trip over some of the best roads the city and its surrounding area has to offer. This two day self supported ride will venture north to Lake Geneva. While you carry your minimalist overnight needs on your bike, Rapha will supply a memorable culinary experience. Sign up now to guarantee your spot. See product details for ride specifics.
The cost of the Transfer Ride is $150, which covers:
- Two days of riding - 93 miles on Saturday, 96 miles on Sunday, 3732 ft of climbing over two days
- Breakfast on both mornings, gourmet ride food, Saturday night dinner, and a recovery meal on Sunday evening

The ride sets out from Rapha Chicago on Saturday morning, on a route that heads for the Great Lakes and the Wisconsin state line. The ride ends with dinner in the village of Fontana, and the following day riders will ride back from Geneva Lake to Chicago. All riders will carry their essentials for the weekend - we recommend a full kit suitable for changeable weather, and aprés-ride clothing - and all riders will be required to use front and rear lights.
The Transfer Ride promises to be a ride to remember, but space is limited to 100 - please book asap to avoid disappointment.
