#Festive500 - Rapha Clubhouse Amsterdam Rides
In 2010 we laid down a challenge to our customers; ride 500km on the eight days between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Since then the Rapha Festive 500 has become a holiday tradition, with thousands of riders around the world taking part. Every finisher earns a complimentary woven badge, and the best story submissions win amazing prizes.
This year we’ll host daily rides from the Clubhouse. Please find below all the rides, information and sign up.
The first day of the Festive 500. This ride will be 70km with a speed of 27-30 km/ph and wearing your over the top Christmas Sweater. We will have a no drop policy but expect you to be able to average at least 27 km/ph. Meet up at 09:30 & roll out at 10:00 @Rapha Clubhouse Amsterdam. At the end of the ride the person with the most over the top Christmas Sweater will receive an award.
Pay a visit to our satellite cafe in Amersfoort; de Mechanieker. There will be snacks and drinks when we arrive at the Mechanieker and before we head back to Amsterdam. This ride will be 115km and we will ride 28 km/ph average. Meet up at 08:30 and roll out at 09:00 @ Rapha Clubhouse Amsterdam
Holland is famous for it’s strong winds, or ‘Dutch Mountains’. ‘Climbing’ the Dutch Mountais can be painfull, so how about putting the wind in our advantage? This ride will be 130km with (hopefully) some good tailwind. We will take a train back to Amsterdam, so make sure to bring some money for a train ticket. Average will be at least 28-30 km/ph depending on the wind. We will meet at 08:30 and roll out at 09:00 @ Rapha Clubhouse Amsterdam
Get ready to get dirty on a 120km loop including a lot of gravel sections. Marjan Peters will lead this ride and will average around 26 km/ph. We will meet at 09:00 and roll out at 09:30 @Rapha Clubhouse Amsterdam
