Congratulations Festive 500 RSC Riders & Instagram Contest Winners

Congratulations Festive 500 RSC Riders & Instagram Contest Winners

Participation was absolutely tremendous for the 2014 edition of the Festive 500! The number and names of participants (many thousands worldwide) are here on Strava. 28 people who have marked RSC as their club on Strava completed the 500km challenge. Total participation equated to our giving $3,904 to the RSC Ride Conservation Fund! Riders proved that the cold (it was as cold as 20 degrees) isn't much of a deterrent to fun times riding.

Participation in the Festive 500 at Ride Studio Cafe was tracked using ride cards. Those people who got their cards signed for 6 or more RSC rides have been able to redeem them for a very special RSC custom embroidered Rapha jersey which they will receive by the end of the month.

CLJ02-Product-SS14-04Considering the large number of participants and those who hit the 500k goal, we had to trim the list. Here are the names of the top 10 (in kilometers, based on Strava) who rode at least one ride with us during the challenge and accomplished the 500k. Below those names are those who rode 3 or more rides with us based on ride cards and sign-ins. Those who rode 6 or more rides with us are receiving the very special jersey free (this is a $260 value)! These people are all denoted with an asterisk by their names.
