Rapha #Festive500

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.


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 are now closed.
