First things first: how did you start riding road bikes?

It was a slow-burn thing for me. I moved to LA, and I couldn’t help but notice the occasional rider travelling through the city, exploring and traversing. I got a road bike and just rode alone all the time, and I dug in to the aesthetics and feelings of riding a bike. The interesting thing is that this was around the time of Armstrong, so cycling was booming, but just not in the way that I was interested in. I mean, I loved to watch the Tour and so on, but it wasn’t why I rode a bike.

Rapha and Herman Miller for the Amgen Tour of California

In many ways, what Herman Miller did for modernism in terms of furniture, Rapha has done for cycling apparel, so it would make sense that the two brands would come together for an event like the Tour of California. Check out these commemorative caps for the ATOC, featuring Rapha’s fit and Herman Miller’s patterns, available each day of the tour via Rapha’s site. Be quick though because the first day sold out fast!

All I wanna know is how do I buy that extra, extra long Hang it All?
