Give your legs the greatest gift this holiday by riding 500 kilometers with Rapha and Strava.

Once again, Rapha and Strava are challenging riders around the world to clock 500 kilometers between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

However, Rapha is not only interested in how fast you go or how far you can push yourself. They also want to see interesting stories, creative ways of documenting each ride, and conscious displays of style on your journey. 

Share evidence of your endeavors using the hashtag #festive500. Prizes will be awarded to riders in the following categories: Most Inclement, Best Story, Prix de la Combativité, Best Photography, with a special Grand Prize for Creativity.  In past editions, stories have been shared in the form of photojournals, hand-bound illustrated pamphlets, videos, postcards, letters, blogs, and the old favorite, email.

Learn more by visiting the the Rapha Festive 500 webpage. Cutoff date to submit evidence and/or claim the finishers roundel from Rapha is January 14th, 2015.
