A great location is nothing without local knowledge, so we’ve turned to Rapha Travel’s California aficionado, Brad Sauber, to put together the weekend’s riding. Tasked with building routes that deserve the descriptors ‘breathtaking’ and ‘unforgettable’, Brad has crafted a selection of rides of varying degrees of difficulty, taking in the best roads in the county.
Riders will pick and choose a route depending on their appetite for riding that day – from day-long epics to gentle spins through wine country. “The rides are designated Moderato, Allegretto, and Allegro, depending on how testing they are. Think of them like the grading of ski runs,” Brad explained.
Bespoke Mobile Kitchen provided the ride nutrition and post ride recovery meals and SAG North America provided professional SAG support for the Rapha RCC Summit in Santa Rosa California.
