/ Rapha festive 500
Alas, I've put the roadie away for the winter, and with xmas duties there's no way I'll manage it on the MTB... Will be getting in a fair amount of riding though including hopefully a night circuit of the Gorlech Trail
It's a good old challenge that especially during the party season! Unfortunately I'm in the UK sans velo so no chance here. I'm trying to make up for it in the next 10 days.
If your gonna be around London I'm sure I could lend you a bike. Mileage doesn't look bad but will have to do some planing for routes
The best I'm going to manage is a couple of spinning sessions at the sports centre near my dads!
What's your STRAVA name I'll follow your exploits and give you some kudos (if you deserve it ;-)
Yes, that read COFFEE-SCENTED CHAIN LUBE.
I'm beginning to suspect this is not about cycling at all. Here's the prize list:
1st: Rapha Espresso Machine, Set of Rapha Espresso Cups and Chris King Tamper, Classic Softshell.
I hope the Chris King thing for compacting the coffee is made of titanium...
I hadn't actually noticed the prizes but that's a bonus, i have a confession that i do actually rather like the Rapha classic jersey
Well don't tell 'em too good a story or they'll try and fob you off with a coffee machine! I think second or third will garner you a jersey.
Nothing against Rapha gear whatsoever, apart from the extravagant cost.
Well, I had thought they were a little pretentious, but that was before I opened the link Henry Iddon posted. Now I realise that they're at the cutting edge of utilitarianism by comparison...
so you think telling them about how i had to rescue Santa and help deliver presents to all the children might be too good for a jersey.
might just settle to riding my 500k on a fixie around the shoreditch/hoxton area between cool bars, coffee shops and being seen with the right people

Don't forget your tweed plus fours and pringle socks combo.
i only have tweed plus 2's will these do (i'm not kidding i do actually own a pair)
You're all set! Superb. Now you just need plenty of photos of you supping ristrettoes in boho cafe's and looking 'tranquillo'.
I'm looking forward to updates, and some new Strava sectors describing your route between whichever chic watering holes you choose to frequent.
you'll be lucky i'm just going to me clocking the required miles maybe stopping in some cheap cafes to warm up
That site is hilarious. I hate Rapha and all the idiots who buy their sh1t.
i wouldnt have said Rapha was sh1t its just expensive/overpriced as with many companies like this it does attract a lot of tw*ts
looks like its just as expensive as Rapha but not as pleasing on the eye (whatever floats your boat)
