Every year since 2010 Rapha has laid down a festive riding challenge: to ride 500km between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. This year, join thousands of riders around the world in our seasonal tradition and riding rite of passage.
SIGN UP TO THE CHALLENGE
Those who like to ride with a GPS head unit can sign up on Strava while riders who prefer to log their kilometres by more traditional means can pick up a #Festive500 brevet card from your local Clubhouse.
SHARE YOUR STORIES
Make sure to follow us on social media to stay in the loop in the run up to the #Festive500. During the challenge, share your ride with us using #Festive500 to be in with a chance of winning daily prizes from the limited edition collection in our social media competition. We will share the winning entries on Instagram each day of the challenge.
From photo albums to poems, hand-drawn maps to freshly baked pastries, riders have commemorated their experiences of the #Festive500 since its inception. We select the most inventive entries and reward their creators with amazing prizes. This year, first place wins a Canyon Ultimate with unique #Festive500 decals. Entries open 24th December and close 21st of January, with winners announced a week later.
In a long-standing tradition of the #Festive500, everyone who finishes is eligible for a stitched roundel to compliment the one you might have earnt on Strava. From this year however, we encourage riders to forgo the roundel. Instead, claim a digital roundel and Rapha will make a donation of equal value to World Bicycle Relief on your behalf.
If you can’t wait for the daily competition, the entire #Festive500 collection is available now. Consisting of insulating cold weather kit and practical accessories to aid your progress on the bike, the collection features an eye-catching abstract design inspired by the various sights and experiences you’ll encounter en route to completing the challenge.

Ride The Festive 500 With Us
If there’s one way to make the #Festive500 easier, it is to ride in the company of others. Departing from our Clubhouses around the world, Rapha will be organising #Festive500 rides throughout the challenge, open to all.
