Ruth’s series of beautifully hand-painted postcards told a story that touched everyone at Rapha HQ and earnt her a trip to Colorado and the factory of bike brand Moots. There, she picked up a new custom bicycle and rode it all week long at the brand’s ‘Ranch Rally’.
Since then, Ruth has continued to embody the spirit of the #Festive500. After her trip to USA she made another stunning artwork, which we are delighted to show here, and she entered the French Divide, a 2,100km off-road bikepacking race across France. Ahead of this year’s #Festive500, we caught up with Ruth to hear how her year has gone. We left as inspired as ever.
