The Festive 500 Finale
There's roughly 24 hours to go of the Rapha Festive 500. We've been overwhelmed with how many riders worldwide have risen to the challenge. As we trawl through all the photography, video, Garmin data and words, here's a selection of entries that have caught our eye on blogs, Facebook and Twitter. Bon courage.
Its position in the road required me to completely block two lanes of traffic to take the shot with my phone. – Troy Allen Coleman
– Dirk Maertins
Heavy snow reduced me to a 20kph crawl on my cross bike. Absolutely beautiful, 242km so far.
– James Fairbank
Texas Wind. – Jason Sager
Only managed 50 miles today with the Northeast blizzard. The 500k is going to be tough. – Mike Eng
Day 1: Getting down this 1-in-4 hill was only half the story. The ascent of the other side was 1-in-3! Just a minor sticking (slipping?) point in an otherwise perfect 117kms through the Yorkshire Dales. – Mike Salkeld
