A Day in Hell

FIND YOUR RIDE

Throughout October, Rapha will host an array of rides across the UK, Denmark, Germany & Benelux, each inspired by Roubaix but with a unique local flavour. Feel the same startline anticipation, road vibration and complete elation on your own Day in Hell.

A Day In Hell - UK

London, Manchester, Edinburgh & Bristol

In a year where the boundaries of what is normal keep shifting, we pay tribute to the race which never was, Paris Roubaix. Determined to mirror the glory and the suffering of the Queen of the Classics, we have stitched together some of the greatest Grave* across the UK: the only way to experience the race this year will be to ride a version of it yourself.


DETAILS

Taking place over the 24th and 25th of October, you may time your trip to Hell around your schedule: simply ride your local route and then reward yourself with a Belgian beer, some frites and a comfy place to watch the racing.

Everyone who completes a route will be given a limited edition A Day in Hell finishers badge, to be collected from your local clubhouse or partner Cafe, one week after the event.

Sign up below to stay up to date and have the chance to claim your reward.

A Day In Hell - Denmark

Copenhagen

Rapha and Allroads brings a taste of Northern France to Northern Zealand on the 24th and 25th of October. The only way to experience 'A Day In Hell' this year is if you do it yourself. We've created a route that will explore some of the backroads we rarely get to experience - including some hard-packed gravel suitable for road bikes. Everyone who completes the route will be given a limited edition 'A Day In Hell' finishers badge, to be collected at Rapha Copenhagen.


NB. We recommend fitting some sturdier tyres on your bike for this event to prevent flats. Something like Continental’s “4 Season” or Schwalbe’s “Durano Plus”


DETAILS
 

The route starts in Hillerød, though you're welcome to start from wherever is convenient to you, and will head Northwest towards Arresø before turning inland and towards the Northcoast and some of the rough roads around Hellebæk. From Humlebæk it's the usual way back to Copenhagen via Strandvejen.

A Day In Hell - Germany

Berlin

In a year when the cycling calendar has been put upside down, our tribute to the Queen of the Classics may return in a different mode, but not without mirroring the glory and the suffering of the race with vibrating cobblestones, even when Paris-Roubaix had to be cancelled this year.


DETAILS
 

For A Day in Hell we have stitched together a route inspired by the cobblestones and the agricultural landscapes of Northern France. Conquer some of the most challenging paths in the surroundings of Berlin on 24th or 25th October. You may time your journey into hell around your schedule as we won’t be able to ride together this year.

Sign up now and you will be given a limited badge upon completion of the challenge to be collected from the Berlin Clubhouse from the beginning of November.
