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.
Consisting of kit and accessories to aid your progress on the bike, the #Festive500 collection is available now, featuring a design inspired by the various sights and experiences you’ll encounter during 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.
