Portland - San Francisco Raid

9th - 19th June 2018

The wildest west coast adventure with Rapha.

In between Portland and San Francisco are some of the wildest and most remote landscapes of the West Coast – landscapes which, in their breathtaking beauty, inspired the Rapha Continental and Rapha Gentlemen’s Races, and challenged us to push beyond our limits. Come and discover this rugged coastline, riding through imposing forests of Giant Redwoods and tranquil coves on tarmac and hidden gravel roads, staying in the best rustic inns along the way. Our finish is across the Golden Gate Bridge, for a reception at the Rapha Cycle Club San Francisco.

Single occupancy — NOK45,300 per person
Double occupancy — NOK39,500 per person

Who is it for?

Reconnect with your love for the bike and exploration. Raids are designed for independent riders with a thirst for going off the beaten track, and exploring lesser-known but nonetheless spectacular destinations and roads. You’ll still have access to a Rapha guide, full mechanical and logistical support, but the emphasis is on self-sufficiency, creating an adventure through wild and unspoilt landscapes. Each night we’ll greet you with hearty food and charming, rustic accommodation, to prepare you for another day’s exploring. It is cycling taken back to the essentials: a bike, a fantastic route to ride, and the self-imposed challenges that brings.

How Hard is it?

Because of the emphasis on challenging terrain and self-sufficiency, Raids suit the more confident, athletic rider, or groups of friends who may already have done a multi-day trip and want to challenge themselves further.

FAQ

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. Raids provide a true opportunity to ride together and build a camaraderie richly rewarded.

Am I strong enough for the trip?

All our trips are physically demanding, but some are harder than others. Raids are among the toughest with roads and terrain off the beaten track and Retreats are among the most relaxing. Our guides and mechanics will support every rider to go beyond their usual level of riding. Each individual trip is rated for difficulty.
