Rapha Retreats are cycling breaks, hosted by Rapha in some of the most beautiful riding locations in the world. Not your average training camp, we leave discussion of VO2 max to others and focus instead on riding as hard as your ability allows and making the most of escaping on two wheels.
A perfect way to start or finish your riding year, whether you want a bespoke training plan or just long days on the bike, Rapha Retreats offer the flexibility to ride how you want. Handpicked accommodation, experienced guides, charismatic riders who have stories to tell, and just the right helping of food, drink and culture make these the ultimate riding respites.
Run over three to five days, Rapha Retreats provide minimal hassle so you can escape and ride. With one base for the duration of your trip, you simply unpack and concentrate on riding and relaxing. There will also, on occasion, be special guest riders including members and staff of Team Sky. We will also benefit from a close relationship with nutritionists and coaches at Team Sky and British Cycling.

Historic routes, breathtaking scenery and classic riding.
Inspired by the classic ‘brevets’ of Europe, Rapha Randonnées are exclusive point-to-point journeys that involve the same kind of exploratory riding but without the hassles of traditional touring.
Run over six days averaging 130km of mountainous riding each day through Europe’s greatest terrain, groups of twelve randonneurs follow carefully designed routes. Each route is fully supported with transportation, experienced guides, mechanics and all inclusive accommodation and cuisine.
The culture and history of each region, camaraderie with your fellow ‘randonneurs’ and very challenging terrain makes for the ultimate escape.
Rapha Travel is now an in-house service. Initially developed and run in collaboration with our friends La Fuga, from 2013 Rapha is running everything, from the initial booking to riding with you in the mountains.
The Rapha Cent Cols Challenge
The toughest and most beautiful cycling challenge in the world.
Created by and run in association with Philip Deeker, the Cent Cols Challenge is one of Europe's toughest cycling tests with 10 days of endurance riding in the mountains of Europe.
The challenge involves climbing 100 cols in 10 days, cycling an average of 200km per day with approximately 4,500 metres of ascension each day. The routes are inspired by the beautifully designed Randonnées Permanentes of the Club des Cent Cols but have been tailored exclusively by Phil.
Run in the Alps, Pyrenees or Dolomites, classic grand tour climbs and hidden gems provide an incredibly tough but unforgettable experience.
