Some of you might have read about the Rapha Festive 500 I completed over the Christmas period. If not you can read about it by clicking the link HERE. Well in the post at the start of the week in a royal blue envelope was my Rapha Festive 500 Roundel.
I have it pictured below with my Whyte mountain bike in shot. This is definitely most appropriate as I completed almost all of the required 300 miles on it.
I have to confess that I had doubts about whether or not I would receive it but very pleased that it has. I am not overly sure what to do with it? I feel I should sew it onto something however I cannot think what? Perhaps it could go on one of my saddle bags.
I do think that I will try my very best to complete this challenge again this year. I enjoyed it greatly and loved the early starts in sometimes quite bracing weather conditions. As I type this I can think back to some extremely cold mornings with freezing which fog and the reward of a hot mug of tea.
For next year I think I would like to take some more photos along the way but do realise that this might not be the best of ideas as far as I am concerned.
If you are able and get the chance, I can highly recommend the Rapha Festive 500. You can set your own route, pace and choose whether to do it all solo, with friends or a combination.
