Today is a good day

It can only mean one thing when, on opening the front door to the postman in your dressing gown, he hands you a black plastic package with a high-vis Rapha label in the top right corner. 

What does it mean? It means it's time for awesome, that's what.

Inside this package of hope and happiness should be a Long Sleeve Brevet Jersey (grey), a matching set of merino socks and a Rapha bidon. More on all of these items later.

That is all.


  1. For several years, I have been looking at Rapha's internet site, but was reluctant to buy without having tried some clothes from this brand.
    But last December, as I was a few days in London, I discovered the Rapha Club as I was wandering around Picadilly Circus, without knowing there is such a place there... And I cound'nt resist buying some stuff (wind jacket in yellow and city rain jacket in orange).
    A few days ago, with sale prices, I ordered another wind jacket (orange this time; black was already sold out)... And now, I am waiting for the package to arrive !

    1. It's a slippery slope, especially when there's a winter sale on!

    2. The slope gets even slippier when someone is giving you a nudge down it! Rapha will find its way into my cycling wardrobe one day, holding out for them to release something a little less understated. Understated is good but the women's range is lacking imagination.
