    Rapha London Soho

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Rapha’s first-ever Clubhouse was launched in 2012 and instantly became a destination for the London cycling community. The location proved so popular that it was expanded in 2014, adding more retail space and a larger café area.

    The Clubhouse is located a stone’s throw from Piccadilly on Brewer Street and is continually vibrant. This is as much a destination for shoppers dropping in for coffee and a bite as it is a meeting place of the London Chapter of the Rapha Cycling Club (RCC), which meets ahead of laps around nearby Regent’s Park or at the weekend, rides out to Kent and the Surrey Hills.

    Events are a regular feature of the Clubhouse, and visitors could find themselves rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names in the sport, who will often make a point of visiting when they are in town.

    Rapha Spitalfields

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Clubhouse can be found in the heart of the East End, in Old Spitalfields Market, a five-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station. The Clubhouse is located in a former bank and offers visitors a totally unique facility.

    Upstairs, you can browse the Rapha range and relax in a café that serves the finest food and coffee. Multiple screens show live and classic racing throughout the year, with the outside space on the market side of the Clubhouse providing a large viewing area.

    Rapha London: Spitalfields hosts a regular schedule of events and rides. The Clubhouse is also the home of the London chapter of the Rapha Cycling Club (RCC) and an ideal setting off point for rides out of the city towards the home counties.
