Borne from lifelong cyclist and previous Rapha designer Graeme Raeburn’s journey of 1000 kilometres over the Christmas period, he concluded half this task was plenty. “It’s not a mile-chasing thing, but rather a journey. It’s about getting out there and just enjoying being on your bike.” So for 12 years riders from Girona to Gongju have been getting on their bikes with the goal of completing 500 kilometres over the festive period. A rite of passage and iconic challenge, each year followers new and old take to the roads, but there’s more to it than reaching the finish line. Camaraderie and community, motivation and mistakes are all part of what makes it such a special challenge.
