Rapha Festive 500

December 16th, 2010 [print] Go to comments

It’s been a while since I’ve updated, but not because I was too busy riding my bike.  Nope, I’ve been sitting on my ass eating pumpkin pie and playing Angry Birds, and managed to put on 3-4lbs of winter blubber in the process.  However, I think I might have a chance to get rid of it all starting next week…

The Festive 500 is a challenge put out to cyclists everywhere, to get in 500km (310.6856mi, if you want to be nerdily accurate) over Christmas, namely the 23rd through the 30th of December.


The first 100 participants to finish–and somehow prove it–get a cool patch of the logo above, but let’s face it, the real prize is getting your legs back in shape and getting rid of a few extra pounds of winter shame.

    Tell me about it. They released the Seasons version and updated the standard one from 63 to 145 levels, and now I can’t stop.

    I think I’ll go kick a ball instead. But you do your thing.

    Great site, Daniel! Due to my city getting hit with 8″ of snow, I won’t be doing the challenge. 310mi in a week is hard enough on dry roads, much less in the snow. Maybe next year.
