The Rapha 500 is 500km to be cycled between the eve’s of Christmas and New Year. Be it on the roads, rollers or turbo trainer. Rain, sunshine, snow, gale. It’s a test of keeping the Christmas comatose of too much food and drink at bay, whilst fitting in visiting friends and family.
I myself have cycled 100km in the last two years, having a job on the road makes training difficult, especially working in events. Therefore the next week should be interesting, as my aim is to average 40 miles a day. Not a great deal for most, but after two years out of the saddle, the physical exertion along with recovery will make this a tough challenge.
