Overview

The RCC Escape event consistently embodies the philosophy of "ride well, eat well, live well," immersing you in the enriching experiences that Taiwan has to offer and sharing them with you. This May, the RCC Escape Hsinchu event, thoughtfully orchestrated by the local Rapha team, invites you on an adventure across mountainous paths, offering a chance to discover Hsinchu's vibrant charm alongside fellow RCC members from across the globe. Spanning 3 days and 2 nights, our goal is for you to fully retreat from the urban flurry, stepping away from your daily routines to rejuvenate both body and spirit, readying you for whatever lies ahead.

FAQ's

You can find all the routes of the Escape Hsinchu right now in our Ride With GPS Route library.

All the routes for the Hsinchu event are designed for road cycling. The optimal choice for this journey is a road bike, which you can either bring along or opt to rent. To facilitate this, we will offer RCC bike hire options well in advance. The rides on Saturday feature both hilly terrains with options for long and short distances; however, a robust physical condition is essential for participation in either.

Please ensure you are in good physical shape to keep up with the group. Should you find yourself unable to maintain the pace and get dropped, you will need to return in the support car. While the pace is intended to be social to foster group cohesion, it’s important that we do not delay excessively for any participant.

The event spans three days of riding, including a shorter route option available on Saturday. 

Each day will feature a regular route length of 55 km, with an average elevation of 1000 m.

It's important for all participants to be in good physical condition to ensure they can comfortably keep pace with the group.

The deadline for purchasing tickets to this event is set for 30th April 2024.

Please note that the Escape event will be subjected to cancellation if the minimum participation threshold of 20 individuals is not met.
