More on Wiggo

You’ll have to excuse the dump of videos and photos for the Hour Record. I’ve been away from the internet for a few days…

Rapha Prestige Launceston

This looks amazing!

“As the sun set over Northern Tasmania’s Tamar Valley on Friday 13th March 2015, the Rapha Prestige Launceston began, with riders gathering on the deck of the Barrel Room Restaurant at Velo Wines. Teams huddled together, nervously discussing tactics and tyre/cog selections for the following day’s 170km adventure to the highest point of Tasmania’s only alpine region, the Ben Lomond National Park. Unbeknownst to the riders, just a week prior the summit had unseasonably received its first snow of the year. The brutality of the Tasmanian landscape and climate would be a defining feature of the weekend.”

Not that I needed another reason to go ride in Tasmania.

1P6A0871

Next week I’ll be embarking on a trip with Speedvagen as we cruise the Cali coast, stopping at key spots and fitting customers for the 2015 Speedvagen Fit Tour. Which, I might add, still has a few spots open. Sign up for a Speedvagen Fit today.

Even if you’re not going to get fit by Sacha, you can come hang in SF on May 2nd and Los Angeles on May 5th at a few choice locations. Our host shops are the Rapha Cycles Club in SF, Mission Workshop’s Valencia store and Golden Saddle Cyclery in Silverlake. There will be group rides leaving from these shops, with special parties at night. Come check out some Speedvagens and artwork from Chris McNally on display.

Check out the full details below.

Rapha and Sir Bradley Wiggins
Rapha_Wiggins

Bradley Wiggins is without a doubt, one of the most iconic modern cyclists and his sense of style is only exceeded by his athletic prowess on a bicycle. As one of the most important figures in British cycling, this Olympian and Tour de France winner is partnering with Rapha on a Wiggins-designed team kit. As the first step on this collaboration, Rapha will provide a full kit for the Wiggins team for their forthcoming season as they prepare for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Personally, I can’t think of a better partnering for Rapha and am excited to see what is to come.

Expect more information as events warrant.

Rapha-Softshell-Jacket-Detail-12082-final

One thing is for certain: Rapha knows their outerwear and cold weather apparel. Every jacket I’ve owned of theirs has been top-notch, far exceeding my own expectations, especially when it comes to the wind, rain and cold. For 2015, Rapha has introduced their new Pro Team Softshell Jacket and it looks to uphold that aforementioned pedigree.

Rapha: Men and Women’s Brevet Jersey and Gilet
WBV01-SSW15-Loc-02

Originally designed to be used in the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonnée – a 1,200km unsupported race to be complete in less than 90 hours – the Rapha Brevet Jersey and gilet has become a staple in their lineup. Each year, a signature gilet compliments the Brevet jersey as a high-visibility accessory for when riding at dusk, dawn and at night. This year, Rapha’s take on high-vis leads them to high contrast stripes, with each gilet and jersey combination using various colors.

The Rapha Brevet Jersey and Gilet are in stock now for Men and Women at Rapha.
