When I was in London in this past December I managed to
squeeze in a brief stop at the Rapha Headquarters
in the famous Camden district. I wanted to try on some of their products and was disappointed to hear that
the temporary „Rapha Cycling Club“ had already closed down earlier in the summer.
Luckily Paula, Rapha’s new area rep for Germany, welcomed me in the office and showed me around.
This was especially great, because everyone was very busy.
With just a few days before Christmas, orders were being prepared and shipped to all the customers
across the globe eagerly awaiting their new cycling gear.
I got to hang out in the „show room“, where all the Rapha products are on display for future retailers
and business partners. Seeing the great gear they produce you ask yourself, why you would ride with
anything but this… Though upon checking my wallet I was reminded ,
this is why my closet isn‘t all Rapha quite yet
Nonetheless, I left with a great looking Paul Smith Merino top for myself and got Jon one of the new
Cyclocross Team-Caps. Good stuff as usual …
Big „Thanks“ to Paula, Barney and all the great folks at Rapha.
