In 2007, Rapha embarked upon a unique adventure. The Rapha Continental is our account of the United States’ most epic rides and routes, published as an online journal. From inspiration to information, the Rapha Continental represents our commitment to the lost art of cycling and the glory of suffering.
The journal is a collection of photography, ride data – such as elevation charts, cue sheets and maps – and descriptive ride reports. We will explore, document and connect the routes and people unique to US riding. A style of riding as much about elements, environments and experiences, as competition and speed. Our long term goal is to create and publish a library of the most epic and favorite routes, rides and riders in the country, by region.
