The Rapha Continental was established in the United States in 2007. A unique adventure, it was driven by a simple idea. To rediscover the lost spirit of cycling via such virtues as exploration, camaraderie and glory through suffering. It was, and still is, about the view from the road less travelled, seeing North America via punishing climbs, forgotten gravel roads and endless tarmac.
The journey has also been about recording these experiences in words, pictures and on film. The result is a unique journal, a growing archive complete with maps, ride data and cue sheets. For five years the Rapha Continental has showcased the most inspiring rides the American continent has to offer. And now, in 2012, Rapha is taking the adventure worldwide.
In addition to continuing in North America, the Rapha Continental will be discovering the road less travelled in the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and Japan.
