Rapha Prestige Cotswolds

Adventure. Teamwork. Resilience.

The Rapha Prestige tasks teams of riders with an all-day adventure across stunning terrain. Unsupported and unmarshalled, the rules are simple: start and finish as a team, and pass through all the checkpoints.

Applications are now closed

Rapha will contact successful teams on or after Thursday, 21st June with a payment link.

The Route

Prepare for approximately 160 kilometres of rolling terrain. Expect to be on the bike for 7-8 hours as we navigate the pick of the Cotswolds’ country lanes. A varied route will see riders navigated open farmland and sheltered woodland with a healthy dose of climbing en route. There will be checkpoint locations and a supplied route, which will be revealed only to confirmed participants 48 hours before the ride.

Rules

The Prestige is a completely unsupported ride. You are responsible for navigation and keeping yourself and your team going. Minimum kit should include two tubes, multi-tool, pump, patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend spare kit and nutrition. A paper cue sheet will be supplied as well as a .gpx file, however the supplied route is not necessarily the most direct way to each checkpoint - teams are encouraged to plot their own routes (in the spirit of the ride we ask teams not to take A roads).

Teams

There will be space for up to 45 teams of four with a number spaces guaranteed for Rapha Cycling Club teams.

Entry Cost

Entries cost £60 per team. Once your application has been accepted, Rapha will be in touch to collect the entry fee. Rapha will supply a payment link to confirmed teams on or after Thursday, 21st June. At the start we provide last minute nutrition, water and coffee. At the finish we’ll have hot food and extra drinks for every rider, and we hope you can stay with us to share stories as the sun sets.
