rapha festive 500
for the past couple of years, rapha has inspired riders everywhere to log some miles when we're probably least inspired (or motivated) to do so...the holidays. from 24-31 december, rapha challenges riders to ride 500km. those that complete the challenge get a badge of completion and strong(er) legs going into the new year. now, i didn't complete the 500km, but i hadn't necessarily planned to complete it either. rather, i was just excited to get out and log some miles after my monthly mileage fell off a cliff in the fall. this past sunday (30 dec), some friends and i went out for a nice (read: dry) ride around seattle. one rider in our posse that did complete the challenge put together a short film below of our ride.
