Rapha Cycle Club Osaka
Rapha Cycle Club Osaka is now open.
Last Saturday, 7th April, saw the opening party for Rapha Cycle Club Osaka, with approximately 60 guests. The following Sunday night, a group of about 50 arrived for the live screening of Paris-Roubaix to watch Tom Boonen blast to victory.
Being the second largest and arguably the most attractive city in Japan, Osaka is coloured with personalities, great food, and a love of celebration. Following the success of the Rapha Cycle Club Tokyo last year, Rapha Cycle Club Osaka will again will be hosting a series of events, exhibitions and, in partnership with the J-Sports channel, plenty of live road racing.
Osaka is the gastronomic capital of the island, with choice coffee selections from Toyama's St. Berries, pastries from Ashiya's Pan Time, and Rapha-labeled wine from Katsunuma's Haramo Wine. Food delivery will also be arranged by neighbouring friends at the Spanish restaurant, Taberna Esquina.
