Rapha Cycling Club | Ride to Watch the Men's Road Race

This ride is for RCC members only. To join the club and take advantage of these exclusive events please visit rapha.cc/rcc.

Join Rapha + Canyon for the ultimate race viewing experience. We'll be riding from The Starling to a special location on the finishing loop to watch the best male riders in the world fight it out to become World Champion.

On the day, the Rapha Mobile Clubhouse will be stationed at a strategic location to provide spectator support with coffee, beers and a BBQ, as well as screening the action from the race so you don't miss a thing. As a memento of the day all riders will receive a special edition 'Yorkshire Rapha Cap'.

The ride will be between 30-50km ridden at a social pace of 20-22kmph average. Remember to bring your sliders (or alternative footwear) and warm layers to change into when roadside. Full details and route to be announced in the coming weeks.

Start: The Starling Cafe, 47 Oxford Street.

Tickets: £10. Visit the RCC App and find this event in the Harrogate location for the ticket link.

To demo a Canyon bike on the ride, please book your size below. Booking Canyon bikes below is only provisional, and you will be asked to confirm your attendance closer to the time when routes are shared by providing your emergency contact details. If booked on a test bike, you will need to arrive at least 30 minutes before the ride to allow setup time. Late arrival may mean your allocated bike is offered to another rider. Test riding one of our demo fleet is completely free- just make sure you bring a Passport or Driving License and bank card in the same name to be left as deposit on the day. Riders can also demo a Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM, pre-loaded with the route.
