I love it when Rapha does small projects like this. Especially when they’re made either in the UK or in the case of sunglasses, Italy. Mazzucchelli 1849 and Carl Zeiss Vision have created sunglasses for the luxury cycling brand and you know what? They look damn good. Check out more details below and see the full collection at Rapha.

Day 01 seems like a cake walk compared to what they’ll experience later on in the trip, so head over to Yonder to read all about it, while their bikes are still in one piece…
