Climbing to an altitude of 1,500 metres above sea level in 170 km is exhilarating but tiring, so it’s good to know there is support for you, whether in the form of a Rapha Travel Guide or a BMW 5 Series Touring. With a boot capacity of 570L to 1700L, the BMW 5 Series Touring holds everything riders need: three spare wheels, up to 20 lunches and any equipment boxes needed along the journey.
We know you can go further with the right team behind you even if it’s all 1,550 metres of the Mont Vial. To celebrate the partnership, Rapha Travel is giving cyclists the chance to be part of their own Rapha Travel experience. Find out where your trip will take you by entering today.
The journey is only as good as the team and support car that takes you there. The Rapha Travel Team are experts at pushing riders to their goals; with a wealth of experience, they truly are the team to take you further. All of the Rapha Travel Guides live and breathe cycling and tackle the journey as a joint challenge with their riders; collectively celebrating the shared achievement at the end.
Supporting riders every mile of the way will be the new BMW 5 Series Touring. The key to climbing the steep mountain passes of France is the Active Power Distribution from the optional xDrive package, which dynamically sends power to whichever wheels need it most. Adaptive M Suspension in the new BMW 5 Series Touring M Sport also helps along the way, to ensure the driver has just as smooth a journey as the riders. Technologically, the BMW 5 Series Touring is a master of its class – a 10.25” high definition touchscreen, our latest driving assistance systems, Enhanced Bluetooth and BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation mean you’re always one step ahead.
