On Sunday July 17th, the annual Rapha Women’s 100 saw women from all over the globe rally together and hit the roads to cycle 100km.
This is a ‘sportive’ ride like no other – it’s an organised ride, but there’s no pre-set route, no time limits, and no support other than the camaraderie that women in your group provide. The annual event is all about women coming together, cycling together and covering 100km in order to promote the wonderful world of cycling alongside one the leading cycling brands, Rapha.
The iconic Rapha brand launched in 2004, and in its short lifespan, it’s had a considerable impact on the cycling community. Not just because they produce quality cycling apparel for men and women, but they get involved in the cycling community and push boundaries for new innovative performance wear, like their new cycling bra.
Rapha isn’t just for the hobbyist, but for the professionals also. Last year, it was announced that Rapha would ally would Canyon//SRAM women’s team to unleash perhaps the most stunning race kit we’ve seen to date.
With Rapha leading the way, we’ve been following the Rapha Women’s 100 via social media from the weekend and it looks to have been the biggest turnout yet.
