The Cent Cols Challenge is organised in association with Rapha Travel. Rapha Travel will be managing the booking process and assisting Phil on-the-ground to make your Cent Cols Challenge experience as memorable as possible.
All the routes for the Cent Cols Challenges are inspired by the original concept of the Randonnées Permanentes of the Club des Cent Cols, to whom I remain deeply grateful for their support and the studious research and creativity of the members who created them.
To book your place on the CCC with Rapha Travel visit : (link will be here on the 28th October) . You will be asked to pay a £500 non-refundable deposit. Your remaining balance needs to be paid at least 60 days before departure. Rapha Travel will send you a reminder via email closer to the time.
Your booking is subject to Rapha Travel’s standard terms and conditions, which will be sent to you.
You will receive a booking confirmation once your payment has been made.
After you have made your booking, Phil will be in touch to personally welcome you. You’ll then receive monthly email newsletters from Phil to provide more details of the event, suggestions about training and news on warm up events and opportunities to meet fellow CCC riders in advance of the big event.
