RAMADAN LAPS AND IFTAR
Join us for fasted laps of Regent's Park, followed by iftar at Rapha London.BOOK NOW
Join Rapha London for a special ride open to anyone observing Ramadan. Taking place on the evening of Wednesday April 5th, riders will meet at 6.30pm for an easy, social ride around the popular loop of Regent's Park before heading to the Rapha Clubhouse in Soho for Iftar. There will be led groups, at least one women-specific group with a female ride leader, and the option to ride in a self-led group. This ride is designed to bring the Muslim cycling community together to ride and celebrate Ramadan. It's also a great opportunity to get some miles in if you are taking part in the Fasted 500. The price of the ride and iftar is free, but we encourage riders to make a donation to the Islamic Relief Turkiye-Syria Earthquake Appeal, to give to those who are in need.
What do I need to bring?
A fully functioning bike, and helmet. You do not need to wear cycling kit (e.g. lycra or cycling shoes) if you feel more comfortable in casual or active wear.
What kind of bike do I need?
All types of bikes are welcome!
What speed will the ride be? Will I be too slow?
We will have groups to cater to every speed.
We will split groups up roughly into experience and ability, so the more experienced riders will ride together and those will less experience or those wishing to ride at a slower pace can ride together.
What food and drink will be provided at the iftar?
There will be dates, a buffet of hot and cold food (halal meat and vegetarian), as well as juice and water.
Will there be prayer mats?
We will provide plastic disposable prayer mats for all, but you are welcome to bring your own and leave them at the Clubhouse before the ride if you wish.
Are there washroom facilities at Rapha London?
The Clubhouse has two modest WCs, but given the number of attendees expected, we’d encourage participants to consider undertaking ablution prior to arrival.
