Cycle Club SF Parklet Opening
On Friday November 16th, Rapha hosted a party to mark the launch of its new ‘parklet’, the first of its kind in San Francisco’s Marina District. Designed in collaboration with Rebar, the San Francisco design firm credited with the creating the parklet concept, the Rapha parklet is located directly outside the Rapha Cycle Club.
The launch attracted quite a crowd, including pro riders Ted King and Levi Leipheimer, and Bay Area cycling legend Gary Fisher also dropped by to say hello. While the rain kept the party inside the store, the new parklet sparkled in the night lights nonetheless. And the recent opening at the Club of Garret Chow’s All Chips On The Table show, made for a festive Friday night.
The rain continued through until Saturday morning and the parklet's official christening prior to our weekly Cycle Club group road ride. Store manager Dante Campanile added some drops of champagne to the increasingly heavy raindrops and our group rolled off across the Golden Gate Bridge for a friendly two-hour spin. By the time we returned the rain had stopped and delicious Four Barrel coffee was enjoyed from the Cycle Club coffee bar out on the parklet. We recommend you visit some time.
