A celebration of hill climbing
The Rapha 12 Hills ride is a celebration of hill climbing, taking place in Jönköping, Sweden. Few regions in Scandinavia offer up hills to rival the climbs the pros tackle in the spring classics, but Jönköping presents a landscape that allows you to replicate the suffering needed to master your inner climber.
Teams of two are invited to navigate their perfect route, taking in 12 infamous climbs in any order they wish, and passing through mandatory checkpoints at the top of each climb together. A kind of hill ‘scavenger hunt’.
The shortest possible route is around 160km and – with hills ranging from 2.5% to 16% average – will accrue approximately 2,200m of elevation.
