The Festive 500 in One Ride: Paris (FR) to Haarlem (NL) Jan 9, 2014

Man, while this is certainly epic in the greatest sense of the word, it looks like a miserable ride. Some gents decided to tackle Rapha’s Festive 500 in one go: from Paris to Haarlem, Netherlands. It’s a long watch, but if you’ve got the time, it’s worth it. Or, let me summarize for you: a lotta windy, wet, riding.

Hats off to you, gentlemen!

    Still disappointed that Wolf and I had to stop in Brussels. But the amazing amount of positive reactions we have received on the movie and photo’s make it bearable. The ride was wet, cold dark and thought, but in the end it was a great adventure and it will end up as a special memory!

    Thanks team #inonego
