Every year the team at Rapha presents the popular “Rapha Festive 500” Challenge. And every year a few CMC members take on this challenge…except over the years it has become more than just a few crazies!
We are repeating the CMC club challenge after the success of the 2021 edition. We encourage our members and friend to join in this challenge by adding a little spice of our own. We are hosting the “CMC/Rapha Festive 500” – a challenge-within-a-challenge where will keep track of our members and friends participating in the Rapha 500 on a separate leaderboard, and report back via our social media on their progress.
Awards will go to:
– Least number of rides to 500km
– Most number of rides to 500km
– Highest average elevation over the 8 days (at least 500km distance)
– Highest average speed / shortest time in the saddle
– Lowest average speed / longest time in the saddle
All just for some good fun and to really earn that Christmas lunch and New-years feast!
