The Rapha Compass Challenge

An open call to adventure by bicycle.

JULY 12th - 18th

Rapha - North American Compass Challenge Cycling event

LOCATIONS

Inspired by the continent-crossing rides of early 20th century cyclists, the Rapha Compass Challenge is a ride with a difference. This July, we’re inviting you to plot your own course between four coordinates surrounding cities across the US, UK, Australia & Europe – all in the space of a week.

How to get involved

Taking part in the challenge is simple. Register for the challenge, make a note of the coordinates in your city, plot a route between them all, and hit the road. You can tick off the checkpoints in any order taking one day or the entire week. Share your adventure online as proof of your progress using #raphacompasschallenge.

Prizes

We have an array of special gifts and prizes available to all those who take part in the challenge. Every rider who completes the challenge will receive a limited edition numbered print from illustrator Casey Robertson, while anyone who navigates to all four checkpoints in a single day will be entered into a draw to win prizes from Rapha. We will additionally choose the best photo & story submission from the challenge in each region to win an engraved pocket compass. To enter your photo, post to instagram using #raphacompasschallenge.
