    What Rapha does:

    Rapha is an interesting company.   On the one hand, they are cycling’s haute couture: a UK-based clothing brand mating cycling’s high and low points on the bike in a tightly-wrapped, smartly-dressed kit.  On the other hand, you cross the pond and head to Portland, OR and Rapha is the center of Portland cool, tatted out just so, with Malkmus-esque hair, yet smartly written, well-connected, and always behaved while putting on invite-only parties.

    But what do they make?   Simply put, the anti-kit, the kit-within-a-kit, the head-to-toe cycling statement that you tape your bars on the appropriate holidays, you train with no race in sight, you are hopelessly and interestingly tan for life, and you espresso at least twice a day.   Why?  Because, that’s WHAT you do.

    Why we like Rapha:

    It’s hard not to like Rapha.   The brand is about the dark side of cycling and the lightness of cadence; the brand is subtle, but most importantly, the brand is about quality.

    Five things you should know about Rapha:

    1. The company sponsors the cyclocross team Rapha Focus.
    2. Rapha is the proprietor of the Gentleman’s Race, both East and West.
    3. You’ll never regret the purchase of the Stowaway Jacket, now called the Wind Jacket.
    4. Rapha went to film school.
    5. When was the last time you coveted an umbrella?

  • Woodland Park: Yeah, You Remember

    We return to Woodland Park with the same course as last year, with perhaps a few minor tweaks. You should remember the long dragging uphill start, the fast, wide, flowing lanes interspersed with hills and off camber bits, both subtle and obvious. For the many people who train here during the week, you’ll recognize much of the ground, but we’ve put it together in a tight spectator friendly fashion.

    If you weren’t here last year, then come see what the fuss is about. You might ask if the course is ‘hard’. Well, that’s entirely up to you isn’t it? Whether you make it hard or not, we’ll do everything we can to help you make it fun.

    Most current forecasts are calling for a partly cloudy day. We’ll see how it turns out. We look forward to seeing you all there.
