The Rapha 500 began over 10 years ago, and is now widely known among cyclist, whether they are outdoor riders or indoor riders, everyone knows about it. The goal of the Rapha Festive 500 is the ride 500 km in the final 7 days of the year, from the 24th of December to the 31st. I personally have never accomplished it, but I am going to try this year!
