With less than three weeks until this year’s Rapha Women’s 100, the clothing maker is hyped to celebrate a decade of bringing women together for their inclusive global group ride. Rapha has set a huge goal of getting 100,000 cyclists to participate, with more than 64k already signed up on Strava for both virtual and in-person rides. And in addition to prizes up for grabs among those who complete the September 18 100km challenge, Rapha has this time created 2 complete special edition kits designed by Zuzanna Rogatty and Studio Nari…
10th annual Rapha Women’s 100 targets 100k riders
First off, Sunday 18th September is the 10th year of the Women’s 100. And Rapha wants to mark a decade of celebrating women’s cycling with more participants than ever – a goal of 100,000 cyclists coming together in one day to ride 100km, 20% more than last year. They are just about 2/3 of the way there on Strava, but still need quite a few more riders to hit their goal within the next three weeks.
If you feel like 100km would be a new achievement for you, now’s a good time to give it a try. And if 100km is just a piece of cake, maybe you can help motivate some other riders along the way. Head over to the Women’s 100 Strava Challenge to join in for free. We’ve been onboard since the first Etape du Tour edition in 2013 and hope to see another decade to come.
Prize draw – OPEN UP for grabs
Every rider that completes a 100km ride on the 18th will earn a digital finisher badge and a real “Rapha reward” (a one-time 10% Off coupon code). You will also be entered in a drawing for a Rapha custom RCC edition OPEN U.P. gravel bike with Campy Ekar and £1000 worth of Rapha cycling kit.

Limited edition Rapha Women’s 100 cycling kit
“This year we’re celebrating 10 years of the Rapha Women’s 100, and for our big anniversary, we’ve made sure the kit matches the occasion. Bringing women from all around the world together to break down barriers and lift up one another, we’ve also created not one but two special edition collections with the help of some very special friends, so we can recognise each other out on the roads and celebrate women in the sport. No go-getting, change-seeking, day-seizing sisterhood is complete without a uniform that sets them apart when out of the road. We doubled up on the design with the expert help of both Zuzanna Rogatty and Studio Nari. Eye-catching prints and limited edition products, the Women’s 100 ten-year collection is celebrating in style.“
The special edition “All My Girls Ride With Me” kits effectively takes one of two directions – airbrush sprays & bubbles over solid colors in Zuzanna Rogatty’s designs OR Studio Nari’s more geometric logotype graphics & fades.
Included in the collections are 115€ Pro Team Training jerseys, 100€ Core Long sleeve jerseys, 85€ Crop top Technical Tees & Core short sleeve jerseys, plus 100€ Core Bib shorts, 25€ cycling caps, 20€ socks, 17.50€ musettes & 16€ water bottles – all in mix-and-matchable colors.
Everything is available now, but order it fast if you want to be representing 10 years of Women’s 100 when the Sept 18 rides roll around.
