Customer Testimonials

Last week, Ben led the Rapha team (Ben, Jonny, Mattia and Franco) in delivering us an outstanding Dolomites experience. In a week where we copped a fair bit of inclement weather, our group of 11 riders were struck by how hard Ben and his team worked each day to make our trip a memorable experience – it was above and beyond all of our expectations. They are a terrific group of guys, and their efforts were really appreciated by the people on our trip.

— Bespoke trip rider, June 2016

The combination of the trip design (routes, hotels, dinners, etc), the service and the Rapha touch (gear, bikes, branding, etc) all made this trip so special.

— Rapha Bespoke 2015


I want to organise a custom trip. Is this possible?

Absolutely. We have created dream trips for families, groups of friends, honeymooners, business associates and corporate clients. Everything is possible, but every bespoke trip is unique, so it’s best we talk you through it from the earliest stage.

Can I make a group booking?

Yes – family members, colleagues or friends usually find that embarking on a group adventure makes it even more fun and rewarding. However, trip places are limited and allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
