Rapha Rides the Victorian Alps

The people at Rapha do some interesting things to promote their clothing, and often feature rides on their website that you might like to do. Here is a little video which includes an interview with an Australian cycling historian, along with a ride in the Victorian Alps, which don't look very Alps-like to me but in a 250 km ride the cyclists climbed 5,000 m, so it is pretty serious since it is double what I did over a slightly shorter distance on Sunday.

Rapha's webpage, along with this video, also has a feature on a 1,000 mile bike race in Australia in 1934 that sounded pretty cruel.
