  • After it’s succes last year we will carry on the tradition of looping the Ronde Hoep. You can put in a big effort by riding as many as you can, or just get the last kilometers in to get to 500k. There will be a group leaving from the Clubhouse at 9.00am (roll out 09:30), although everybody can join in at the Ronde Hoep or ride the loop by themselves. We have a stand along the loop with food and snacks to refill your energy from 10:00 - 15:00.
  • It's Festive 500! Cycle a Christmas star around Amsterdam and impress all your friends on Strava ;). We will ride 100 km with different levels averaging around 28/30 km/hour. Our rides have a “no drop” policy and we allow several chances to regroup if necessary. We will start at the Rapha Clubhouse Amsterdam and head west to create the first point of our star. From there we head south (second point), then make our way back up the hoep to Ouderkerk. We will turn back down and circle Baambrugge for our third star point, then head to Muiden for the fourth. We'll knock out our final point by crossing over into Noord, arriving back in the center with the ferry. Meet for coffee at 9am, roll out at 9:30am from Rapha Clubhouse Amsterdam
