With just eight days to complete 500km between Christmas and New Year to end the year, there was every chance that riders would encounter the unexpected! Whether you completed the challenge off-road or combined your rides with runs, whether you glided to victory or faltered along the way, we’ve loved hearing your tales of the adventure.
We spoke to Matthew Christian who endured and conquered the challenge documenting his rides AND runs all on Strava throughout the eight days, who said “I made an effort to do a decent ride on all three bikes (road, gravel and MTB) during it and also threw in a 26 mile fell run for good measure!”
He continued: “It was a good excuse to get out on Christmas Day and I’m very glad to have a Rapha stockist on Island.”
We want to see those brevet cards! If you completed the Rapha #Festive500 in the Isle of Man, are apart of the Cycle 360 club on Strava and can evidence those miles, well then we owe you a big fat prize of a 20% off voucher* to spend in the Cycle 360 store on all Rapha products. Simply speak to our bikeshop team next time you’re in and they’ll honour you the discount.
