The Solstice Century Challenge


New to 2020, Restrap is proud to announce our biannual Solstice Century challenge!

We know there’s something special about riding in the winter. Heading out on a crisp morning and squeezing every bit of enjoyment you can out of the reduced daylight hours can be extremely rewarding. The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year when the sun is the lowest in the sky.




Over the Winter Solstice weekend on 19th & 20th December, the plan is to make the most of the dwindling daylight and ride 100 miles within the Solstice weekend. This can be in one ride, or multiple rides. Indoors or outdoors, It’s entirely up to you! 

All riders who complete the challenge will receive an exclusive Solstice Century Patch for their efforts. 

You can use Strava, Komoot, RideWithGPS, or any other ride tracking platform. Make sure your ride is public so we can see it!

There’s also a chance to win some bonus goodies! Tag us in a photo of your ride using the tag #SolsticeCentury and show us what you’ve been up to. Capture a beautiful sunrise or sunset, show off your local gravel trails, or do something crazy and unique. Our favourite photo will win a set of 125L Exposure Trace Lights with a custom laser-etched Restrap logo, and a packable Race Musette to keep your goodies in!
