Posted on July 18 2014

This Sunday 20th, thousands of women around the world will be taking part in Rapha’s Women’s 100. It’s a challenge set to ride 100km anywhere, anytime during the day. Over 6,000 ladies have already signed up.

Rapha have teamed up with Strava. Those who registers to take part, join the Strava Challenge and then complete the ride will receive an exclusive Rapha woven badge to celebrate their success.

A bunch of the girls in our Factory Five family will be taking part on sunday morning. They’re doing it in style, on their track bikes! If you’re of the fairer sex and want to take part then the details are below.

It’s not a race but a 100km ride is a definite challenge so it’s open to intermediate riders. It is unsupported so bring your own spares and tools. Everybody who takes part will receive a free Factory Five Water bottle.
