1. » A Day in Hell - London 2020


In light of the latest advice around the Covid-19 outbreak and in the interests of public health, A Day in Hell will be postponed. We will reschedule this event later in the year. All ticket holders will be sent details as soon as possible.

Rapha brings a taste of northern France to southern England, taking riders on a tour of south London’s bridleways and byways in honour of Paris-Roubaix. Starting from Herne Hill Velodrome, this challenging ride will take in 100km of south London lanes, including several sectors of the rough stuff as well as some steep climbs. You’ll complete around 1000 metres of climbing before swinging back to Herne Hill for a victory lap of the velodrome, just like Roubaix. As our ride finishes, the race itself will be underway and we’ll sit down to watch all the action unfold on the big screen. Better still, riders will be rewarded with Belgian beer and frites to eat while watching the Queen of the Classics.

Sign on will be open from 8.45am on the day, the ride begins at 9.30am.

The Route

100 kilometres with 1000 metres of climbing. For the romantics among us, the route is passable on a road bike but we recommend wider tyres. We will provide a GPX file of the route to all riders; a GPS computer is required since only the cobbled sectors will be signposted.

Secure your place

There are 230 places on this year’s event so move quickly to avoid missing the early break. All tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

NB. You cannot purchase events with other Rapha products. Please make sure your basket is empty to book this event.
