    The Route

    Prepare for approximately 130 kilometres of challenging terrain. Expect to be on the bike for 8-9 hours as we explore the rolling hills of Hirado Island. There will be 2 checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will be revealed only to confirmed participants 2 weeks before the ride.

    Rules

    The Prestige is a completely unsupported ride. You are responsible for navigation and keeping yourself and your team going. Minimum kit should include two tubes, multi-tool, pump, patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend spare kit and nutrition. A check point card will be supplied as well as a .gpx file, teams are encouraged to plot their own routes (in the spirit of the ride we ask teams not to take A roads).

    Teams

    There will be space for up to 20 teams of four to five. Each team must consist entirely of female riders; a number spaces are guaranteed for Rapha Cycling Club teams.

    Entry Cost

    Entries cost ¥25,000 per team. Each rider receives a complementary cap and musette with an exclusive design unique to Prestige you’ve ridden. At the start we provide last minute nutrition, water and coffee. At the finish we’ll have hot food and extra drinks for every rider, and we hope you can stay with us to share stories as the sun sets. Once your application has been accepted, Rapha will be in touch to collect the entry fee. Rapha will supply a payment link to confirmed teams on or after Friday, 13th April.
