Rapha Festive 500 – 2012

I have signed up for the Rapha Festive 500 – 2012.  The Festive 500 is a challenge to Ride 500km between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve posting evidence of your endeavours. Use photos, videos, prose, poetry, drawings, or any other creative application you see fit, through these channels using hashtag #festive500.

This seems straightforward enough even though I am working through Christmas without a break.  Here is my plan for getting it done:

Day No Date Day Type of Day Distance
Day 1 24-Dec-12 Monday Work Day 25km
Day 2 25-Dec-12 Tuesday Public Holiday 100km
Day 3 26-Dec-12 Wednesday Public Holiday 100km
Day 4 27-Dec-12 Thursday Work Day 25km
Day 5 28-Dec-12 Friday Work Day 25km
Day 6 29-Dec-12 Saturday Weekend 100km
Day 7 30-Dec-12 Sunday Weekend 100km
Day 8 31-Dec-12 Monday Work Day 25km
Total 500km

I think I will have earned a rest after that!
