If there’s one cycle club that is well-known for its coffee rides then it’s the Rapha Cycling Club. But given the current ban on group rides, Rapha has, like many others, taken to Zwift to organise some events. You’ll have to sort your own coffee though.
If like us, you’re planning to hit the turbo trainer a lot over the next few months, you might be looking for different virtual group rides to help pass the time.
Rapha has organised open sessions where you can ride along with their sponsored pros from the EF Education First and Canyon/Sram teams.
These rides are open to all abilities and you can find them here, or by searching #RCC on Zwift Events.
For paid-up RCC members, there’s are group training sessions lead by RCC ride leaders. You’ll need to fire up the RCC App where you can access the rides.
The RCC will be a familiar name to many cyclists. Rapha recently re-launched their cycling club with new member benefits alongside a business restructure that aimed to reduce the company’s reliance on discounting.
The club has become more affordable to join, down to £75 from £135, and Rapha is looking to provide more benefits, with less focus on their clubhouses.
Son of a Marathon runner, Nephew of a National 24hr Champion, the racing genetics have completely passed him by. After joining the road.cc staff in 2016 as a reviewer, Liam quickly started writing feature articles and news pieces. After a little time living in Canada, where he spent most of his time eating poutine, Liam returned with the launch of DealClincher, taking over the Editor role at the start of 2018. At the weekend, Liam can be found racing on the road both in the UK and abroad, though he prefers the muddy fields of cyclocross. To date, his biggest race win is to the front of the cafe queue.
