This Thanksgiving holiday, don’t sit around and pile on the calories, ride them away with Rapha and Strava’s Turkey Takeoff.
Thanksgiving usually means eating and drinking as much as you possibly can. But Rapha and Strava are challenging you to ride as much as you can over the holiday to take off that turkey and burn 9000 calories* between Wednesday the 23rd and Sunday 27th November. Riders who complete the challenge will receive a Rapha Turkey Takeoff badge.
It’s time for the Turkey Takeoff.

An average turkey dinner might consist of:
- ½ bottle of wine (13% vol.) = 260 calories
- One turkey breast = 342 calories
- Four average size potatoes/mash serving = 40 calories
- A large slice of pecan pie = 510 calories
- Vegetables = 60-100 (depending on how they're are cooked)
TOTAL = 1210 big ones
Over five days, with breakfast and dinner on top, you’re looking at consuming 8000 calories plus so you're well on your way. Time for Turkey Takeoff!
