Start and finish: Transition Bike Company & Outpost

  • The Rapha Prestige tasks small amateur teams with an unsupported and unmarshalled adventure across stunning terrain. The rules are simple: navigate the route and finish as a team.


  • Prepare for approximately 80-90 kilometres of single track terrain, expecting to be on the bike for around 8 hours. The Pacific Northwest holds a special place in mountain biker’s hearts, and for good reason. Loam, ferns and wild berms make the region dream-worthy for most riders. The small town of Bellingham, just north of Seattle, should be on every MTB bucket list. Known as the gem of the Cascades, we chose Bellingham for its world-class trails and deep mountain bike roots.
  • To make sure we’re taking riders on the best of the best, we’ve crafted 80-90kms of riding that touch some of the best trails in town, with 2500m of climbing, but more importantly, the same amount of downhill descent.
  • The exact route will be revealed only to confirmed participants at least one week before the event.


  • Rapha Prestige Bellingham is a completely unsupported ride to be completed by teams of four. To make sure you’re self-sufficient out on the road, ensure you’re prepared for anything by bringing along two tubes, a multi-tool, a pump, a patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend a wind jacket and plenty of food.
  • To confirm your team’s spot, team captains must complete a single rider details form for their team and all teammates must agree to the terms outlined in the Prestige event waiver.
