RAD RACE Tour de friends
a mixture of stage ride, group ride and LONG DISTANCE alley cat
We had a big dream - well, to be accurate it was more like an idea. To do something truly epic and by looking at our small company: something big! To ride across the alps with 500 friends. A stage ride that crosses paths with a lot of well-known traditions but furthermore that tries to bring back something that often lacks priority in other bike events: COMMUNITY AND FRIENDSHIP.
Now the first two editions of the RAD RACE Tour de Friends are in the books and we knew right away that we had to do this f***ing great stageride again. Down below is the WAITING LIST. Sign Up if you wanna join us in 2019. You will hear any news first and you will also get the registration link 24hrs before anyone else.
The RAD RACE Tour de Friends idea: A team stage ride from one city to another. Road bike, fixed gear or cross bike – your choice. Several days riding, block party every evening for all riders on the piazzas along the trip with local treats. Included are equipment transport, accommodation, and food along the way. All you need to arrange is how to get your bike and bags to the starting line. Feel like a pro rider for a few days. But without the competition. You can make it a race, but no one cares. It’s about riding with your friends and having the time of your life.
It's not a stage race with blocked roads and a mass start! All stages are not car-free and the roads are not blocked! The course leads us mainly through rural areas but with little traffic.
For orientation during the ride, you can use your own GPS devices and our STRAVA tracks. There will be professional timekeeping for all stages, but always keep in mind: This tour is about going on an epic ride with friends, not about being faster than anybody else.
The start of each stage works like this: Every 60 seconds one team starts until all teams are on the road. There will be escort vehicles hauling your equipment and one at the rear to pick up riders who can’t continue or have technical problems.
