Rapha has another crazy challenge for the last week of 2011 called the Festive 500 - Ride to Redemption. The challenge is to ride 500 km between December 23 and December 31. We are taking the challenge quite literally and kicking it off by Riding to Redemption Rock on December 24 following this route. We will start the morning off with our noses against the window of Ride Studio Cafe at 8 AM, awaiting their opening, to get espresso and scones, before heading out to ride at 8:30 AM sharp. This will be a fun, hard, spirited and festive ride. Folks are welcome to join us. We will be on our tandem. We plan to be back before dark, but it is 90 hard miles. It might be a good idea to bring lights. Definitely bring a camera and an spirit of adventure.
We are planning other rides as the week goes on, including rides to Purgatory, Brimstone, and World's End. More details to follow.
