RAPHA 100 — Sunday July 26th, 2015 @ Kildonan Park 8:30 AM

womens100-logoJoin us for this world wide event! Every year Rapha hosts a 100k women’s ride to inspire women around the world to meet new challenges and get on their bikes.

This ride will be an unsupported ladies only event. Everyone can ride at their own pace but the intent is to create a sense of camaraderie so that every rider can complete the event. A route map will be supplied, and pace leaders will be identified for ride day. There will be many opportunities to stop along the way for refreshments or just to smell the roses or for the more competitive in the group, a chance to power through the route as fast as you’d like. The planned route will loop parallel to the Red River via Henderson Highway, River Road in Selkirk, and then detour through Bird’s Hill Park before heading back to our starting point of Kildonan Park.
