Rapha invites women to take part in 100km cycle challenge

Rapha Women's 100 hopes to attract 8,000 women to take part globally on Sunday July 20 2014

Performance cycle clothing brand Rapha is launching a 100-kilometre cycle challenge for women. The official launch of the event takes place on International Women's Day, Saturday March 8.

Rather than an organised ride in one location, the Rapha Women's 100 on Sunday July 20,  will include rides all around the globe. Rapha's aim is to double the number of participants that took up the 2013 challenge - from 4,000 to 8,000 women worldwide.

Anyone interested in hosting a ride as part of the Rapha Women's 100 can register on www.rapha.cc/womens100 (opens in new tab). Online ride community Strava will be lending a helping hand, offering ways to join rides and track progress.

In addition to officially launching the Rapha Women's 100 challenge on Saturday, Rapha will be holding a sale on its range of women's clothing.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
