So with a whisker under a month to go before the second global Womens 100 event, Rapha have two events this week in the UK for ladies to attend in preparation for the big day in July. The London cycle club will host an evening with talks from guest speakers, offering advice and a great chance for southern based cyclists to mingle, whilst Rapha will again return to ther Peak District, basing a challenging training ride out of Chesterfields cycling mecca, Nonnas restaurant.
25th June - Rapha Womens 100 night at the Cycle Club London
Guest speakers will speak on three elements of riding and preparation in order to assist with training ahead of the big day. Topics covered will include the head, the body, and the bike, with all areas covered from nutritional advice, training plan advice and maintaining both your body & machine as you prepare to take on the 100km. Based out of Rapha's central London located Cycle Club, doors will open at 7pm sharp for wine & snacks as the evening gets under-way.

29th June - Rapha Womens 100 Northern Training Ride
Rapha will once again return to the lumpy land of the beautiful Peak District to host a 60km challenging training ride through the tough northern hills of Derbyshire. With a supported feed stop and various speed groups, all ladies can look forward to a much deserved pasta party at the northern culinary hotspot for all cycling aficionados, Nonna's restaurant. You can read my write up of the 2013 edition of this training ride here.
The ride meets at Nonna's at 10am prompt for an 11am roll-out (perfect to enjoy a much needed espresso & meet other riders). Places are limited so please do register your interest on the link below:
