Inspired by the continent-crossing rides of early 20th century cyclists, the Rapha Compass Challenge is a ride with a difference. This August, we’re inviting you to plot your own course between four coordinates surrounding one of our eight US Clubhouses – all in the space of a week.
The Rapha Compass Challenge
An open call to adventure by bicycle.
AUGUST 24th - 30th
How to get involved
Taking part in the challenge is simple. 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, but you must share your adventure online as proof of your progress. You can do this by submitting the story of your ride below or by using #raphacompasschallenge on Instagram.
We have an array of special gifts and prizes available to all those who take part in the challenge. Every rider will receive a signed and 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, Ride With GPS, Wahoo, Nuun, WTB and MiiR.
Submit your story
Once you’ve ticked off each checkpoint, prepare an image of your recorded ride and share it via the link below before submissions close on September 1st.
