See James Hayden's Transcontinental Race-winning bike at Rapha in London's Spitalfields

Fairlight Strael on display at Rapha Cycle Club on edge of City ... but other riders had their rides stolen after finishing race

If you're based in or near London and want to take a close look at the Fairlight Strael that James Hayden rode to victory in the fifth edition of the Transcontinental Race this earlier this month, you're in luck - it wil be on display for an indefinite time at the Rapha Cycle Club in Spitalfields.

If you can't get along in person to the venue, which is at 61-63 Brushfield St, London E1 6AA,  you can see all the details of his bike at the link below.

After crossing the Continent in nine days, you'd have thought Hayden would take a break from two-wheeled adventures across Europe - but he's about to set off on another , albeit a non-pedal powered one.

At least Hayden still has his bike. A couple of finishers had their ones stolen on the way home, according to posts on the Transcontinental Race's Facebook page.
