RAPHA #FESTIVE500500 kilometres. Eight days. Christmas Eve to New Year’s Eve. Restrictions come and go but some things never change. Rapha’s annual festive riding challenge is back, with an all-new capsule collection and more ways than ever to go the distance.
This thread is for anything F500 related.
For the last 3 years I have closed out the year by chasing my 500km + as a goal to end the year on, and start the new year fresh. This year I was able to get all of the time off so no need to cram in the kilometres before and after work, but this isn't a normal year.
Last year I planned group rides almost every day, but with covid cases hitting 822 in a day in Tokyo (we know there are a ton more as testing is pretty low), and #GOTO not being cancelled until after Xmas, I think I will mostly be riding by myself this year, maybe a little bit of indoors to add extra as well. I will post my routes for anyone that is interested, and as much as I loved having buddies to take turns on the front and will miss the banter I am more worried about the other risks.
The other risk is that if hospitals fill then you have a bike accident the ambulances might have a tough time finding somewhere to take patients. So stay safe out there. I'll be avoiding Uber zones.
