Join the Rapha Club

 

More than just a retail space, with live screenings of road races and a full calendar of exhibitions and events, the Rapha Cycle Club aims to be a home for the sport, the epicentre of cycling where visitors can get their fix of riding, style and culture whilst enjoying a cup of Rapha blend coffee.

 

 

A club for all fans


This unique cycling experience may be called a 'Club', but membership is free. The only qualification is an interest in the sport of road racing. Simon Mottram, Rapha Founder, commented on the reason for creating the Cycle Club: “Long frustrated at having nowhere to watch racing or share the love of the sport with others, we have conceived the Rapha Cycle Club as the place we would most like to hang out in the summer. We are looking forward to meeting like minded fans, riding and watching the racing, consuming cycling culture, surrounded by beautiful things. This is the ultimate Rapha experience.”

A three month celebration of road racing


A full calendar of events including film and music evenings, book and product launches, evening screenings of races, regular group rides and Rapha customer and club evenings will enable visitors to immerse themselves in road cycling throughout the summer.

All the important road races will be screened live starting with The Giro on the 8th May and followed by the Tour of California, Dauphine, Tour of Switzerland and Tour de France. Three exhibitions will be at the heart of the Cycle Club this summer, with a Fausto Coppi exhibition in May and a Tourmalet one in June with the original notebooks of Alphonse Steines. In July, while attention on the main floor of the club turns to the 104th Tour de France, the Rapha Cycle Club will present an exhibition of vintage racing bikes where 10 original bikes from the last 100 years will be exhibited offering a rare insight into the technology that has carried Tour riders to victory over the years.

 

A further Rapha Cycle Club will open in July in New York City and will run until the end of September.

We’re heading over to the press launch next week (London, not New York unfortunately) so we’ll update you then.
