RAFA Rides is a very well organised event, the route is easy to follow and provide a great combination of fast flats, undulating rollers, challenging climbs and some very quick descents. The rest stops are very well stocked with fresh foods, snack bars, Tea, Coffee and Water.
Highlights are the burger (one of the best I’ve had) and the beer at the finish along with a small band and the very enthusiast welcome home.
The event is accessible to anyone, be it your first sportive or as a seasoned rider chasing a 100 mile PB. Best of all, you are supporting the work that RAFA do in supporting all RAF personnel in their times of need.
Looking forward to next year, bigger better and with more challenges.
