The morning commute can be tiresome at the best of times. For most people, it involves far too long sitting on a cramped bus or train. But, what if, for a short while, that could change? What if you could trade the noisy bus or the painful standstill traffic with an unimpressive view for a bicycle? It's possible with the new BMW 5 Series Touring, the official Rapha Travel support car for all cycling experiences - supporting riders on every road along the way.

Some roads are worth the trip.

Trawling through traffic on the motorway may not seem appealing, but cycling miles with a view of the Italian lakes or riding through historic climbs of the Tour de France enroute to the Côte d'Azur with nothing but nature as the acoustic is breathtaking. With a BMW 5 Series Touring support car following you on your journey, you’re never too isolated or far away from civilisation. The BMW 5 Series Touring is on hand at all times; it has 570-1700 litres of storage capacity, leaving you free to cycle without worrying about lunch storage, emergency bike stops and the like.

Meet the new team member for yourself.

Good enough for 15 riders who recently took a trip to the Alps, the BMW 5 Series Touring was a reliable member of the team - when pushed to the peaks of their comfort zones, the vehicle provided a trusted source of support, leaving riders to focus on the cycling. Through Enhanced Bluetooth, riders were always able to stay in touch with the BMW 5 Series Touring driver and with the BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation, riders never veered off route.
