  • Explore unique riding destinations with expert local advice on all-day, overnight and weekend trips that blend a self-sufficient ethos with support where you need it. Attended by a small group of Rapha Cycling Club members, every intimate getaway offers the best riding every location has to offer and a chance to connect with your clubmates.



  • Two days of challenging riding in the beautiful Driftless Region of Southwest Wisconsin. Riders will be treated to beautiful rolling terrain, full of climbs and scenery unlike anything in the Midwestern US. The area, bounded by the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers, is a true road cyclist's paradise. Left untouched by glaciers that flattened most of the region, it is full of paved, twisting farm roads that weave through stream valleys and forests. These hallowed training grounds for Greg Lemond will be sure to delight and challenge cyclists of all abilities.
  • Arriving on 10 September and riding for 2 days, the club will explore the varied landscapes of the Driftless Region on routes planned and led by local Ride Leaders and Rapha staff. Prepare to cover 116 miles of road riding with 2000 metres of elevation. The exact route and trip details will be revealed closer to the event date.



  • Escape Midwest is a riding getaway to be completed by a group of self-sufficient yet supportive cyclists. To ensure you’re ready for the road, be sure to bring along two spare tubes, a multi-tool, a pump, a patch kit and a masterlink. We also highly recommend bringing a spare kit and plenty of food.
