Rapha cycling apparel, who has a new pop-up shop on the Bowery has sponsored an amazing ride. Paying homage to the 10th stage of the Tour de France, which took place 100 years ago, four Rapha riders set out to ride the same course.
More from their site:
On the 9th June 2010 four Rapha riders set out to travel the same route that the 10th stage of the Tour de France took 100 years ago. Travelling 326km from BagnÃ¨res-de-Luchon to Bayonne and taking in four major cols including the Col du Tourmalet, the highest peak in the Pyrenees, this was to be a monstrous journey.
