A team is no faster than its slowest member. Enter a team of four and start together, work together and stay together in order to finish.
The key ingredient needed to last the course. Rapha prestiges are unsupported and unmarshalled, so you'll need to find your limit, then push past it. You’ll never forget it, and you’ll never regret it.
Event Day Schedule
Arrival and check in will begin at 7:00 am on 26th August at Bench Cafe, one of our RCC Partner Cafes at Tsuen Wan.
Complimentary coffees will be available for riders, followed by a safety briefing for all riders. Teams will set off one at a time.
Once you're out of the gate, you'll begin your ride in our designated route with the provided tracking file. Please ensure you have the route loaded into your cycling computer and be self sufficient on the road as this is an unsupported ride. You must abide with traffic rules at all times. Please also be considerate on paths or bridelways as many of them are shared use.
Expect climbs and beautiful views aplenty, with our staff waiting half way round at a control point with refreshments.
We'll welcome you back in after your ride with some food and drink. You'll be free to hang out, enjoy the atmosphere and celebrate a challenge conquered.
