A couple of years ago, Rapha opened a pop up shop on Bowery equipped with a coffee bar, a look at its full line, and a location for bikers to meet before or after a ride. Flash forward to 2013 the Rapha Cycle Club is opening a permanent location in NYC with the same concept. It’ll be in the Meat Packing District, a few yards away from the West Side Greenway which includes the longest unobstructed bike path in Manhattan. The shop’s address was announced this week but riders were given a chance to find out before everyone else last weekend. Rapha’s Facebook page posted coordinates to a location that would reveal the shop’s new address. For the diehard Rapha fans and cyclist who attempted to ride out to the coordinates, which turned out to be in Bear Mountain, it would have been a 50 mile trek from NYC.
Rapha Cycle Club will open its doors on September 20th. The address is 64 Gansevoort Street.Read More
