NORWAY | RAID NORWAY – RCC EDITION | 2-6 AUGUST

For those who thrive on riding off the beaten track – and who are also members of the Rapha Cycling Club – the Raid Norway cycle tour from Andalsnes to Oslo offers a truly unique adventure. During the four days, unforgiving weather, ascents to snow-capped peaks and descents that finish along the shorelines of endless fjords will be experienced. Raid Norway is not for the faint hearted; raids are best suited to the confident, athletic rider who has previously tackled tricky terrains.

FRANCE | CENT COLS CHALLENGE CEVENNES-ARDECHE | 12-24 AUGUST

Sizzling temperatures, breathtaking scenery and gentle gradients: the Cevennes-Ardeche Cent Cols Challenge is for the strongest and most experienced rider only. This 10-day cycling trip is located in one of France's most underrated and remote cycling destinations, covering stunning locations such as the volcanic Puy region and the historic town of Ales. Established by endurance rider Phil Deeker, Cent Cols Challenges push the boundaries of what's possible to achieve on a road bike.

FRANCE | ASCENT VENTOUX – LES CINGLES | 17-20 AUGUST

Looking for a reputable cycling accolade to have against your name? Become a member of Le club des Cingles by riding all three sides of the legendary Mont Ventoux – Bedoin, Malaucene and Sault – in just one day. Although a testing challenge, Ascents are suitable for all riders including road cycling novices, so long as plenty of training has been put in beforehand.

FRANCE | CENT COLS CHALLENGE EASTERN PYRENEES | 26 AUGUST - 7 SEPTEMBER

Testing both the body, mind and spirit in equal measures is the first of the Grand Finale tough triple. Starting at the northeastern city of Girona, cyclists will ride onto the mountains of Spain, Andorra and some undiscovered French cols. Highlights of this particular cycling trip include climbing the infamous Roccacorba and 'Montanya dels Angels', as well as having the chance to enjoy a thermal bath in the town centre of Ax-les-Thermes!

ITALY | BESPOKE – TURIN TO NICE | 26 AUGUST - 2 SEPTEMBER

Experience Turin to Nice with a Bespoke and supportive service from Rapha Travel, tailored perfectly to your preferences and cycling ability. Over the course of 6 days you and your private group will take in the classic Piedmont hilltop villages, cycle across the French borders and back to the fine Piedmont wines and cuisine, ending on the stunning French Riviera.
