Those of you on Strava would have noticed that the Rapha Festive 500 Challenge is on again. Ride 500km's in 8 days between the 24th December and 31st December to work off those mince pies and earn a woven badge in the process.

As per last year I thought I would create a post to allow people to post the rides they are doing and to join in with others.

Note: all club rides are still on.

I am a maybe for most rides due to wedding preps but I go in with the best intentions. :lol:

I will also be away 24-27th riding, but intend to continue some K's for the Rapha 500 when I'm back.
Sunday 28th 6am ride through RNP, then I'll be continuing on to Jamberoo. All welcome, I'll be riding at a 28 pace.
Tuesday 30th Hills club ride with maybe a bit more
Wednesday 31st club ride to LaPa with a bit more also if I need to make up the K's.

Anyone planning to do LaPa tomorrow (31st) morning?

I'd like to tag along but I do so with the advance warning it'd perhaps be a more cruisy version of LaPa.

Hi, I'm planning to join the ride tomorrow but will only have time for the normal route. I assume there'll be others doing the same.

Nice ride this morning.

If there's an interest in a Friday the 2nd spin, I'd be keen to turn the legs over. I'm probably the least suitable person to lead a ride though - just throwing it out there.

Eastern suburb hills, LaPa, that sort of thing. 25s pace is more my threshold

Friday 2nd January, looking for ride partners for any part of Austinmer (north of Wollongong) return approx 150km 25 pace
Easy to catch train at Thirroul for return journey, or turn at any part of ride
Route: to Waterfall, then through park, then over Stanwell tops to Austimeer for coffee and then return
